The photo below was taken from the wonderful Sartorialist’s site. I think it’s such a brilliant idea; peoples from all over scan in their vintage photos, with a little blurb describing as much information as is known about the photo. I thought this particular one was extra cute. Both women’s outfits (cotton bikini top, slacks, saddle shoes and house dress) and the man in his military fit (complete with officer’s cap), their relaxed pose and the 1940’s “Eat More” sign is fantastic.
The sassy woman in the saddle shoes is my grandma Lois. This photograph was probably taken in the 40’s in Yakima Washington. Lois always spoke her mind and was sharp as a whip.
