Great pictures of 1960’s outfits

First, let me warn you that this isn’t a real post.   Actually – I just wanted to make sure that I could find these photos later – so I thought that I would save them here.

But it reminds me of a point I made earlier about historical / period / era costumes – look for pictures / TV shows / movies / illustrations that are NOT about the clothes to get a good idea of how people actually dressed.   In this series of photos, people sent in family snap shots from the 1960’s.   The pictures weren’t taken to show of their clothes, really, but rather to commemorate a family gathering or vacation.   So the clothes that you see are what people really wore to Christmas dinner, or to the office, or to church.

Enjoy.
