1940s gals

Photobucket

Here are a few photos in my collection that I wanted to share of 1940s ladies. I think my favorite are the photos below. The woman on the left looks so modern, and the girl on the right is darling with her dark socks and sandals, and tweed jacket.

Which is your favorite?

Love all of these. My favorite is the one of the two girls with sunglasses on the beach. They look so happy!

There is something so entrancing in the face of the girl with the soda pop. Lovely.

I love all of them, but my favorite has to be the one of the two girls with sunglasses on the beach. They just look so happy!

I adore old photos!I always treasure finding them at antiques or thrifts.My husband teases me that I have more dead people I don't know displayed on the walls than family photos.

I adore all of them. Yesteryear real world women are a massive source of sartorial inspiration for me (much more than celebs of the day, fabulous as they were), so I adore all of these gals. I think the last photo is my very favourite though, there's something about it that reminds me of my maternal grandma and her friends at the time.


Big hugs & cheerful Tuesday wishes,
♥ Jessica

Aaah when I see this I'm so incredibly bummed out that present day women lost so much of their fashion sence (compared to then)

Fortunately, not all!

These are fabulous, thanks for sharing! I think my favourite is of the two older women with their faces in the beach beauty contest cutouts, it's brilliant!
