Yosemite: Mid-Fifties

Yosemite: Mid-Fifties

Here we see our two companions yet again, albeit one of them with an odd choice of footwear (or lack thereof). tterrace says the car is a 1954 Ford. View full size

What's on the skirt

Ballerinas:

Tinkerbell

Looks like pixies, or Walt Disney's idea of a fairy, on her dress. Which perhaps explained the bare feet - she was younger than she looked in that snapshot.

Purty lady

I just find that lady to be cuter than the cutest button.

Snow mean feet?

Finding snow in the higher elevations of Yosemite in summer isn't unusual. I have a slide I took of my father, mother and grandmother standing on a snowbank there in July 1962. But they all had their shoes on.

Feedsack fashions

Her skirt might have been made out of feed sacks.

Summer snow

My family and I went to Yosemite in the 1986 (I was 10) and I remember playing in the snow. It was June 21, the longest day of the year, and we are from Florida, so putting our feet in the snow felt wonderful!

On the cuff

Looks like Mom bought the jeans figuring he would grow into them. Also is that snow? Talk about cold feet.

'54 Ford

I had one but not as fancy -- this looks to be a Customline. Mine was a Mainline business coupe. No radio, rubber moulding around the windshield and back window, stickshift six, just one armrest, just one outside rearview mirror.

Air conditioning? It had the two-seventy type with both windows open going 70 mph.

Sputnik

That's what I thought the pattern on her dress was but this was presumably before that.

A ballerina maybe?
