From Kodachrome to Polaroid, our old family pictures are worth saving and sharing for future generations
“Photography, alone of the arts, seems perfected to serve the desire humans have for a moment – this very moment – to stay.” Sam Abell
I discovered my father’s old Kodachrome slides and came across this gem.
This is my Grandpa and Grandma having fun in the sun on the Jersey Shore.
My Grandpa was always a suit-and-tie kinda guy, straight laced, never went anywhere without a hat!
It just cracks me up that he spent the day at the beach in his street clothes – slacks, socks and shoes!
Plus, he’s reading the June 1960 issue of “Holiday” magazine. Holiday was travel magazine published from 1946 to 1977. It was famous for employing the world’s best writers, such as Graham Greene, and photographers, and giving them the freedom (and money) to interpret a subject in whatever way they wished. ~ shared by @lizajp11
