I don’t think I can stress enough, how much I LOVE Vintage Images from the 1930s-1950s. Sometimes it’s just crowds of people or just a lone individual that catches my eye, but you can be sure that whatever I’m saving and sharing (with you!) they are a wonderful moment in time.

Now friends lets see what goodies I have found this month:

Cute and stylish kids alert! I love the contrast between the two friends. I wonder what the design is on the skirt? I see balloons I think…

Recently Toronto hosted the Great Gatsby Garden Party, these ladies from 1920s Toronto would have been wonderful inspiration for that day.

Janet always had the best handwriting and therefore made her the best secretary for their monthly meeting (or so I think that is what is happening here).

  1. Cool pics, Catherine. Thanks for sharing those! I’ve always been in love with saddle shoes but they weren’t in style during my growing up years. Perhaps I should invest in a pair now?

    • I own a pair of saddle shoes and I LOVE them. I bought brand new ones on Ebay but just google Saddle shoes new and you will find shoe stores selling them again. Happy shopping!

  2. What a fabulous collection of photos! I just love the two young girls at the beginning, they’re so adorable in their oh-so-trendy fashions. xx

  3. I always like to see old photos and these are some super ones. I think the skirt in the first photo has kittens playing with wool balls on it. I would love to find a skirt like that, perfect for a cat loving knitter!
