I Googled for "Giant Killer Sundae" and didn't find much, except this blurb under a hybrid image of a Chicago neighbourhood:
"Now a Starbucks, this former site of Lockwood Castle, home of "The Giant Killer" the Chicago Area's biggest sundae. If you were able to eat it in one sitting, you were given a free one next time you visited. Served 4-6 people."
ETA: If you Google Image a "Giant Killer Sundae," you'll find LizzieMaine's avatar !

these... super super comfy Poke around the website some... they have some nice vintage-able shoes, and they're well made and very comfy.

Everyday Fashions of the Fifties - huaraches were being worn in the early 1950s. I think I am going to have to get the 30s and 40s editions of the book to broaden my horizons!
My Grandmother, Norma Jane Moody Aggelis (b.1931) c.1946. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out. The dress was almost certainly made by my Great Grandmother, Eldora Moody.
Norma at Kissingen Springs, Bartow, Florida in the mid 40s. The springs are no longer there. From what Grandma told me, they were beautiful. They had a band stand and gazebo for dancing where all the young people went for fun.
Norma and Jimmie Aggelis on their wedding day in 1951. They had five daughters, the first of which was my mother who was born in 1952.
Norma and my mother, Stephanie Faye Aggelis in 1952.
My maternal Great Grandmother (mom's dad's mom), Ollie Lee Hunter Aggelis c.1920s. She was married at 15(!!!) to my Great Grandfather who immigrated from a Greek island off the coast of Turkey. Ollie and Steve Aggelis were married for over 50 years until he died in the early 80s. My mother says I resemble her.
I have some pictures of my Grandfather and Great Grandfather, too. Since this is a thread about women, I'll post those in the Display Case thread for family pictures.
Love all the pictures ladies!! Makes me sad that I have none of my family besides a few photos of my Great Grandfather during WWII that got passed down to me because according to my grandmother "no one else in the family would want them" (of course after they found out I got them there was an uproar... I made they photo copies and kept the originals!!) but he is in uniform in them and well everyone has seen a million photos of men in uniform in the 1940s!!

This is such a lovely thread! I love seeing how women were naturally glamourous back in the old days. I wish we all still made that much effort these days.
Here are some photos of my very glamourous grandmother Winifred (Win for short) back in the 1940's (I assume!).
I have to link to my Flickr account as I have not yet learnt the art of posting photos in threads

I always remember she spent so much time doing her hair and makeup to make sure she looked her best every day right up until she died. I miss her!
