Mama In Pin Curls


Just wanted to show you this picture of Mama, me, and my little brother. I'd say it was taken around 1958 or 1959. Definitely before 1960 when my little sister was born. Mama's hair is in pin curls without the chiffon scarf she usually tied around her head. I have dog ears and my brother a burr haircut. I think they are called a buzz cut nowadays. We are all three barefooted.

It's funny about these old photos. Sometimes it seems I can remember the picture being taken. I'm probably only 7 or 8 so it is probably just my imagination. I don't know why I think I can remember something from 50 years ago when I can forget someones name in less than five minutes.

  1. Amen to that! My family likes to kid me and say that I live in th past so don't ask me anything about yesterday! (Smile.) Therefore, I guess that is why I love your posts and this blog so much!

    Friends, Susannah

  2. Wonderful picture!

    I agree with you on the memory thing too :)

    The older I get, the more I seem to spend my brain power on memories, instead of memorizing new things **giggle*.

    Enjoy this beautiful day..

  3. This is really the best sort of picture - a sweet moment in time. My mum used to put her hair, and ours in pin curls. She used to use rags on our long hair too. Would anyone today even know about curling hair with rags? Makes me feel ancient!

  4. LOVE that picture. We have some similar ones. And, I remember my Mom putting my hair in pin curls. Amazingly, my hair looked pretty good when we took out all those bobby pins. :)

  5. Its a lovely photo. I'm sure you can trust your memories of when it was taken - I can recall much more detail from 50 years ago than what I did last week!

  6. That is a precious picture. So many memories would be lost if it were not for pictures.

  7. This is just neat! We were going through some old slides the other day. Seems like it wasn't proper to smile or something. Love the smiles here - even if it is just from the sun : )
