The 60’s

Hitting The Skids

“I came across this gem going through old family pictures handed down to me. That’s my grandmother and mother with a distant relative and his son and daughter. My uncle is on the far right, understandably hiding from the camera.”

Before There Was Photoshop

“I pulled this photo out of a shoe box at my grandma’s house. (She’s the right-most superimposed person.) This is all of her siblings & my great-grandmother in the middle. When I asked my grandma about it, she said they wanted a pic of the whole family but my grandma & my great aunt (the other superimposed one) were not available, so my great uncle had them put in the picture. Now this was done YEARS ago before photoshop. I had it on my fridge for the longest time. They look like quite the happy family, don’t you think?”
