Vintage Photos Taken From My Google Plus Page - 5

Vintage Tintype Portrait 1875

Vintage images again from my Google+ Pages. The one above is from a very old picture, about 1875 and he has quite a scary appearance. But I also noticed one of Anne Kennedy's posts - the laundry advert below.

When you put the two photos side by side there is a certain connection ...

Hands in the air happiness or madness

Next is the photo of some Oxford Bags, trousers created by Oxford uni students back in the 1920s. It's all in the width seemingly.

  1. These are a riot!

  2. That top combo was scary! 1920's pants remind me of the bell bottoms of the late 60-70's.

    Oh if I had the little girl's address, I'd do right and write her - so sweet!

    1. I remember flared trousers, as we called them. Never really liked them but still wore them. Fashion goes in circles.

  3. Yup, I would write her too. Cute pictures those. I am so glad those Oxford Bags had gone before I was around to see them. Just received a pic with my mother on, she had a Marcel Wave. Long way back.

    1. It's amusing to look back at fashions. I look at some of the stuff I once wore with amazement - didn't I have any good taste!!??
