Easter - 1950s Style - Saturday Snapshots

Back in the days of black-and-white photos my dad loved to take pictures with his Kodak Brownie camera. Here are some he captured at Easter time over the years. 

Eat. Eggs. NOW.
My brother, mom, and me at an
Easter egg hunt (Dallas, TX)
White anklets, patent leather shoes, bowtie.
Yep, that's the Fifties, all right! How 'bout that TV and those curtains?
Fancy hats, Easter purses, and
dig that crazy jacket!
Giant Mutant Bunnies!
I'm surprised  we didn't run screaming 

from these creepy critters.
I'm not so sure this is a good idea
I hope these pictures brought back good memories for you or at least gave you a smile. 
Happy Easter!

What a lovely selection of shots. I love your mum's frills in the first one, but those bunnies are a bit scarey.

What fabulous photos. I love old photos. Love all the clothes here but particularly your dress in the second picture.

Thanks for sharing. The culture of the 50's and 60's has always fascinated me.

I write this as we are visiting Fort Worth where we will be for Easter weekend!! Those bunnies would have scared me!! We are of the same age as I look at the fashions and styles in your photos.

Wow, those pix take me back! Patent leather shoes and Easter hats. We always had to have a hat, too. Remember that song "In your Easter bonnet..."? Now you have inspired me to look for my really old pictures. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

That style of blouse was called a "peasant blouse" -- back in the 1950s and early 1960s in Texas. I loved them and had several myself.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I love looking at clothing styles in old photos too. I could have included photos of my Easter dresses from every year, but didn't want the post to be too long. Thank you for dropping by.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Life was much simpler back then -- at least in my world!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

It's fun looking back at styles from the past, isn't it? I hope you're enjoying your visit to Fort Worth.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Have fun looking at your old photos. I had a great time finding these for today's post.

Lovely pictures and memories. How huge those bunnies are!

Anne Bennett said...

Those giant bunnies are a bit overwhelming. These photos made me want to look back through family photos to find old easter shots of my family of origin, too. My Snapshot Saturday highlights tulips

How cute you all are! Happy Easter, Sandy!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I wonder if most children are intimidated by huge characters in costume? I sure was!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I had fun looking through photos for this post.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thank you, Irma. Happy Easter to you too!

Love looking at photos from that era. The drapes in our living room were very similar!

I'm glad you enjoyed my old pictures.

These completely took me back in time...I love them! What made me laugh the most were the drapes! I think we all had the same ones!!!
