I love gawking at the clothes of glamorous movie starlets in black and white and models in vintage magazines, but seeing photos of “regular” people of the era really sends me.
I bought these lovely photos recently at an antique shop and just adore them! The clothes are fantastic and the people are just adorable.
These folks were the first to catch my eye, they seem so happy and in love! The photo is undated, but judging by her hairstyle and clothing I’d say it’s definitely from the 1940’s. Her dress is gorgeous and has some great ribbon detailing.
Next is a family photo that is also undated, but I’m guessing forties. Her outfit is a dream! I love the coordinating separates and her hair bow. Her husband is a classic workin’ man with great suspenders. The twins are a bit creepy, but cute in their matching outfits. My favorite part is the shadow of the photographer in the bottom corner!
Next is this gorgeous thirties gal! Her floral dress, white shoes, sun hat and finger waved ‘do are to die for! I like to believe that she’s on her way to a glamorous lawn party.
Finally, my favorite of the bunch is this photo of young gals at a High School graduation in 1941. Every one of these ladies has their own unique style, from demure to chic. Check out the shoes! *sigh*
The back of the photo reads: “Alice Pelter, Anita Block, Meriam Cadish, Anna May. Dorsey High School Graduation- June 1941.”
The two girls on the right are my favorite! That matching set on the far right is a dream, I wish I could see it in color. The gal next to her has wonderful shoes & an adorable button down dress. Here’s a close-up on them:
The final photo is a landscape shot that reads:
“371 Imperial Limited, in Fraser Canyon.”
Hope you enjoyed checking out these great photos, I know they sure make me smile.
Until next time, friends…
