You Could Dress Me Up…..1959- Newark NJ

Note to self:    Remember how I mugged for the camera in 1959 when I’m attempting to photograph the grandchildren in 2014!

Pittsburgh Public Schools was closed today.  I did some sorting and found some old family photos.  My family didn’t own a camera that I know of but I think my sister took this photo somehow and I will ask her tomorrow and add any details. My cousins may have been involved.  Paul? John B?

An iPhone photo of a photo isn’t the best quality but you get the idea.

Ruth Hendricks 1959

And thanks to Kathryn of Vastly Curious blog  I went and found the front page from New York Times August 23, 1959  Steven Rockefeller‘s Wedding to a Norwegian (Anne Marie Rasmussen )in the photo

  1. LOVE it Ruth ! I wonder why you were holding so tightly to the newspaper and what was the headline? I tried to look !


    • Thanks Kathryn. I googled Sundays in August 1959 and found the headline. Thanks for the cool idea. i never would have done it otherwise.

  2. . . . and I can just picture your mom, wearing her no-nonsense expression, making you wear those white gloves before heading off to church. : )


  3. Ruth – that must have been an Easter dress picture! My mom used to dress up the 3 of us and every Easter, I loved shopping for a new dress which I outgrew each year and never wore again. The dresses and underthings were always itchy! And of course, a new hat and shoes!


Always good to hear from you.....
