Happy Easter from the 1950's

 Easter Sunday, 1950's
Mom, Dad, my little Sister and I,
along with Rusty, our Cocker Spaniel
Fitchburg, Mass.

Back in the days when women wore high heels, dresses, white gloves and hats to church;
when men wore their best suits and ties.
when little girls wore petticoats and bonnets, ankle sox and Mary Jane's.
It seems like a life time ago.

Happy Easter, Mom and Dad.
You're so beautiful and so handsome.
I love you. I miss you.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to everyone.

Donna

So sweet. I had a cocker spaniel named Rusty when I was growing up.

I love this nostalgic post. I did one very similar just before Easter. I noticed quite a few of us bloggers were getting a bit sentimental at that time. Thanks for sharing.

What wonderful pictures -- they do remind me of my own childhood. For us it was a Springer Spaniel. I'm pretty sure I had that same coat and hat, too!
