Windows on the Past – 1969-1973

How time flies! In 1969, I had one child.

Ellie + Kathryn
Baby Kathryn and me

But little Kathryn grew… and then there was a new baby! As for yours truly, well, with Jeremy’s arrival, I had to decide on going au naturel with my hair, which meant letting the curls take their toll. Straightening it was just too much work for a busy mom.

Bringing up the rear: Ellie (me), aka Mom.

By the way, for sharp-eyed readers, that is indeed the same black turtle-neck jersey I am wearing in both photos! Look, I hang onto things I love, okay? 😁 Like my fabulous kids, now accomplished adults! So proud of them!

  1. I love look-back blog posts. I dressed the same way circa 1973 … turtleneck sweater, those short wool patchwork or multi-colored vests and the button-up jeans. We all dressed alike back in the day. Your hair is a mess of curls now as well. 🙂

    1. Yes, now picture this. In the top photo, my vest was real *suede*. With fringe at the hem. Oooh! And in the next pic, the vest was all multi-coloured blocks, and one of the colours was a perfect match for the coloured jeans: brick-red. Mmmm! 😀

  2. 1969? Let’s see. Where was I and what was I doing? 🙂 🙂 🙂
    I remember people wearing brick-red jeans! They were cool, man!

    1. Heh, yes, but impossible because that duplex we were renting got demolished (as did the whole block of them) to make way for the Decarie Square shopping mall.


    2. Oh wait I made a mistake, Jer. Wrong duplex! This one still exists! We could go there together when you visit here this fall! 4987 Borden Ave. in NDG! 😁
