  3. I won this book on eBay recently and it just arrived today. When I opened it, what should I find but these vintage photos that were pasted inside!

    Nice photo Hadley. I wonder where in Sydney that was taken?
    Here's a picture that was taken outside of Sydney at Little Hartley 1935. The courthouse is still there.

    Next time I brush out my set I won't feel so bad about not having a totally flat crown and more fluffly ringlets thanks to this glamorous gal:

    Wow! Very glamorous indeed - I love that her hair matches her necklace. :)

    Just being a bit pedantic here, she isn't 'fixing' her shoe, but making a little protective cover for the toe from thread so as not to wear out the satin so quickly. (I used to do ballet, although we used to glue little crocheted ones on - much easier!)

     
  10. Some family album pics -- I don't know who these ladies are. Though the one on the right in the first two pics looks like my great aunt.

    My wife found these

    I know I am a male and that this is really a ladies section but my wife has been looking over my shoulder and wanted to look at this thread. She remembered these images and thought they were appropriate for this thread.

    Here's the link for the photos http://www.swingfashionista.com/2009/07/hollywood-vine-1944/

    In the meantime, I will work on convincing my wife to join the forum (perhaps you could help me convince her).

    All the Best, Fashion Frank

    Looking through those pictures on the website make you realize just how much the outside of those buildings has stayed the same while other parts of the campus are becoming so modern!! Thanks for sharing!

    - a photo of a photo of my late Grandma - Władysława, the original taken around 1950 I pressume. Snapshot was taken with my mobile whilst visiting my parents, and it isn't of great quality, unfortunately, the curtain reflecting in the glass and all, but hasn't she had a lovely smile?

    I have been thoroughly enjoying this thread, and I have saved a few pictures for some hairstyle experiments. :)
    Here are a few pics I have to share on the thread. :cool:

    My Great Aunt Mabel, who I was named after. I love her waves.

    This is my Great-Grandmother 'Momba', in an evening dress, early '50's. She was probably on her way to an Eastern Star meeting.
