Pool Chic: 1965

Pool Chic: 1965

This is my father in 1965. I think he's dressed up for a wedding. Scanned from a print. View full size.

Familiar Yard

Our back-fence neighbors had a very similar pool in their back yard, installed in 1958. Same coping, same tinted concrete deck and pebble paving, and even the same cigarette bucket and some of the lounge chairs. Your father's suit jogged a memory as well. I'm probably about 10 years older, but in 1965 I wore a similar mustard yellow vest with a dark blazer and slacks for what were called dressy occasions. At least your grandparents spared your father a necktie with a full Windsor knot.

Boy groom

Makes me want to see what his bride looked like. Colorized in pastels, you might have a Hockney here.
