Easter 1968

I love photographs – a moment in time – captured forever! I especially love old family photographs. I am a little late with the above photograph. I was hoping to post it for Easter – but I couldn’t find a copy. Recently, while visiting my parents – I found the photo along with some other old photos and scanned them. This particular Easter photo really makes me smile. I believe my mother made our dresses. The groovy hats are a sure sign that the photo was taken in the late 60s! We posed for this photo at my grandparents’ house at 98 Washington Street in Penacook. We certainly looked cool – right down to Tom Jr. in his suit. Ken wasn’t even a sparkle in my mother’s eye yet. He was born in 1971.

Below is an older Easter photo that I came across.

Easter – Early 1960s

You don’t see many families gathered together in their new Easter clothes posing for family photos. It was a simpler time back then. I am glad that I grew up during this simpler time, and I am glad that many of these moments were captured in photos.

Have a great day!


  1. Deb, love the photos and we have some like that too- you should see my updo! Thanks so much for sharing and you are right in saying that it was a simpler time and I am glad I can recall that time as well.

    Take care! We are getting ready for Kyle’s college graduation on Sunday!!!!

  2. Congratulations, to Kyle! Thanks for visiting the blog and commenting. It is always great to hear from you!

  3. I love these pics, Deb. They so remind me of my family dressing for Easter. We got to wear the hats and gloves and we got new dresses and shoes. Everyone was styling for sure. Like you I love to see old pics.
