Attire

My mother-in-law was just telling us of the one piece button up uniforms she had to wear in phys-ed. I was having trouble picturing them until now.

Uniforms

Yikes! We were still wearing gym uniforms like that in the 1960s. Ours were a grayed blue and pretty awful.

Mom

The girl on the far left sooo resembles my Mom. She didn't go to that school though and would have been 17 at the time.

Not just future mothers

…but pretty girls, as well. (Hint to Dave re: Tags.)

Mothers of Us All

In a few more years these girls would be giving birth to the postwar baby boom.
