I'm posting at Sepia Saturday today.
The suggested theme:
168 : Nominated by Sepian John Newmark, this photograph of the Potsdam Conference could make you think of meetings, round tables, famous events, photographers being photographed or almost anything else.
I couldn't find a round table but they certainly look like they are having a meeting!! And I can throw in a famous event as well!
My mom and aunt are at the head of the table, my uncle on the right and the couple on the left are Australian friends, Kevin and Jean, we (my parents) met while living in Baie Comeau Quebec. My aunt and uncle were visiting from Montreal.Uncle Kevin and Aunty Jean would become the parents of Julianne McNamara the American gymnast.
She won the 1980 US all-around title and earned a spot on the Olympic team that boycotted the Moscow Games.
That's Mom's writing July 1960.
It must have been very disappointing to win an Olympic place and then not be able to attend,ReplyDelete
It looks like an intense meeting too, but what is in their hands? Is it a toothbrush, and why?ReplyDelete
Very 1960ish glasses and furniture, and a nice famous link to go with your image too. Great Sepia Saturday submission.ReplyDelete
I was wondering about the toothbrushes too. Perhaps an emergency morning meeting about the lack of breakfast or the empty toothpaste tube.ReplyDelete
Darn! I am trying to figure out what they have in their hands!!! It DOES look like toothbrushes............ReplyDelete
If ever a photograph captures a time perfectly that is one of them. The clothes, the styles, the expressions - all perfectly pronouncing the decade.ReplyDelete
The glasses and the hairstyle- very 1960s. I see a hairbrush and a toothbrush; wondering about those things too.ReplyDelete
I didn't notice the toothbrush, but I surely noticed Kevin's socks.ReplyDelete
The guy in front looks like he is showing off his socks on purpose. I think I would have shot this photo from a different angle that did not include his legs and feet.ReplyDelete
How did the gymnast, daughter of 2 Australians, compete for the U.S.?ReplyDelete
There must be an interesting story there. Do you know?
