While home this weekend for the Canadian Thanksgiving, my mother brought out old albums for us to browse thru. One of those albums was filled with various images of difference vacations my grandparents/parents took over the years. It was so nice to see how happy everyone looked and all the cool places they ventured out too. So keeping with that theme, today’s ‘Vintage Photo Tuesday’ is all about Family Vacations (featuring 1950’s and early 1960’s images of families in all shapes and sizes).
1950s Family vacation to Hawaii. The photo on the back says “The Hawaiian Trio”.
1950s Families who wear matching outfits when at Yosemite, stay together (or at least I think that is how the saying goes).
A visit to the Hoover Dam in 1953.
Calico Ghost Town…1950’s.
Kids & their Casinos. Golden Gate Casino Las Vegas, 1950’s (The hotel still stands today).
Four women on a cruise ship.
A stylish beauty in Mexico.
Knott’s Berry Farm or Bust!
Taj Mahal 1960’s.
One cannot visit Venice without taking a gondola ride, circa 1960’s.
Lastly, vacations are meant for enjoying the small things, like drinks and a paper while on a terrace in France.
