WOW where did June go?? Summer is already going zip zip fast and I’m so far behind on all these cool blog posts I want to share with you. SORRY, they are coming I promise! Posts like “My recent trip to Glasgow and London”, “Vintage Dance Hall – Kenwick on the Lake” and “Vintage Air Canada advertising”. Stay tuned!
In the mean time here are some really cool images I have been recently pinning to my Pinterest board “Awesome Vintage Pics” that I wanted to share with you today.
Off we go on a vintage image adventure!
I did mention Summer above so lets start with a great summer photo of a couple enjoying Banff, Canada in the 1950s.
Need a vintage beach look for your summer pool parties? These ladies have it down pat.
I love bowling, I’m terrible at it, but I love it and now I know my next “vintage bowling look”. Don’t you just love her look, especially with her adorable snood? But I do wonder how she is going to bowl only in her stockings?
Up next an Image from my upcoming blog post “Vintage Dance Hall – Kenwick on the Lake”.
Before it was razed Kenwick-on-the-Lake in Bright’s Grove was the place to be in Sarnia for entertainment and dancing. At a “Rock ‘n Roll Nite” held on July 24, 1956, as many as 1,700 teens danced the night away to the sounds of the Jack Kennedy Orchestra (source).
This image instantly caught my attention because I thought the woman in the photo was strikingly beautiful and also possessed great style.
This Sunday I’m back at the “Ascot like event” being held here in Toronto called “Hats and Horseshoes” for the big Queens Plate Race at Woodbine Racetrack. And once again I’m back to Pinterest looking for amazing Racetrack Fashions for inspiration like these very well dressed ladies from the 1930s.
One of the things I love about summer is all the festivals that are put on that never happen in the winter time. Like the Grilled Cheese Festival and the Poutine Festival (mmm Poutine). As a half German I also support festivals like this Sauerkraut Festival that was held in 1947, complete with the Queen of Sauerkraut.
All Hail the Queen!
I will now end my post today with this fantastic photos of young ladies from the 1950’s having a fun time together.
I love photos that maybe are not perfect but clearly capture a wonderful moment in time.
Do you have any favorite vintage photos you stumbled upon recently? If you did please share, I would love to see them.
Have a wonderful rest of the week friends!
