Saturday Snapshot

February 12, 2011

This picture was taken by my uncle in August of 1954.  Shortly after my parents were married, my father was deployed for close to a year.  My grandmother insisted that my mother come home while he was gone.  This picture was taken at my grandmother’s house when he returned.

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.

    What a beautiful couple! So what do you think her waist was , 21 inches, less? My mom was the same – don’t know how they did it!

    I always love looking at old photos. Your mother looked so
    glamorous.

    Great photo! And I love your mom’s style. So classy.

  21. February 12, 2011 6:14 pm

    Kathy you are your mother’s daughter, no ifs buts … you are the splitting image of your mom. I see class runs in the blood line.

    I absolutely adore your photos, but you know that. My grandparents had a similar story of getting married and then my grandfather going overseas. How strange it must have been to be newlyweds and then have to separate for so long. I always think about how strong they were 🙂 Your parents are lovely.

    I wish I could pull off a dress like that…. your mom looks great! Love the old pics!

  24. February 12, 2011 8:34 pm

    Great photo! I enjoy seeing your family. It allows me to better understand/know you!

  25. February 12, 2011 9:26 pm

    Oh, I love the old photos! They make me think of looking through my parents’ old photo albums, and remind me of another time.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    I love how formal she is dressed…what a gorgeous and wonderful picture!

    I continue to love all these photos. I do think we lack that sense of style that all women had back then. It is sad really. I’m such a schlub!

    I love these old photos you’ve been sharing. They are treasures.

  33. February 14, 2011 1:02 pm

    What a great figure on your mom! 🙂
