F-A-M-I-L-Y

I found this photo of my family taken about 42 years ago - obviously dressed ready to go to church, or a wedding.
Don't you love my brother's double breasted jackets with the shorts (nice knees....lol)? My older brother has a single breasted jacket with long pants......all very 'dapper'! My red dress was made by my mother, from a dress belonging to my grandmother, and my ringlets were created with rags.

Lovely to see you all looking so dressed up. A very attractive mob too! I always remember that it was a very special occcasion when a brother finally flicked the shorts & was allowed to move into 'Longies'.

What a beautifully dressed family Christina. Love those ringlets. I always remember the words of my mother when I was a child ~ "Well dressed children never go out without gloves" My goodness, times have changed haven't they :))
