i think i would like to do this every friday. i have quite a collection of vintage photos (i've been working on it for several years now), including many from my own family's history. i think i'll start off my new friday endeavor with one from the family archive.
this so very 50s-60s newspaper clipping is, i think, quite silly. i love the women all considering the checkered dress, which looks a bit tablecloth-y, don't you think? well, the lovely in the white hat right in the middle of everyone is my grand grandma bea (mrs. robert voshmik in the caption). she was such a cool woman, it is not surprising to me at all that she would've participated in a fashion show. she also wore women's suits as soon as they were available (at least, that's the impression i've gotten). we have a photo of her in one, it's quite fabulous, but you'll have to wait.
