Vintage Photos

My father has always been an elegant dresser as shown by this image taken on the Atlantic City, NJ boardwalk circa 1938.

Had to click to get it to open. But loved this sweet little shot. I worked on the AC boardwalk in the 70's as a young girl, on both Steel Pier and right across the boards at Taylor Porkroll. Dated the Peanut Man that summer . . . I was 14 years old.


Blogger Christina Vartanova said ... (10:10 AM) : 

great photo!


Blogger said ... (10:13 AM) : 

This is a beautiful photo. The adults, fading off into the mistiness of the boardwalk, focus one's attention on the beautifully turned out young man.

Amazing shot, down to the diagonals of the wood planks. I love how people always used to be dressed up every time they walked out the door.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:40 AM) :

Blogger sweet fashion affairs said ... (11:44 AM) : 

On the first sight I was not sure a man or a child. What an influence clothing can have!

So dapper!
Thanks for sharing it with us.

The real beauty of this photo is that we can be sure he wasn't the only child dressed so. Small children of the past seem to render the grown folk of the present hopeless, no?

Great photo!

Really nice. And I really like this Vintage Photos-thing - a real lot of fun to watch them all!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:22 PM) : 

Classy picture for a first class gentleman!


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:23 PM) : 

Oh, I love this photography. Honestly, I wish we still dressed the way people dressed back then. It was so elegant and classy. Though the jacket looks a tad big on your father, here, as a boy, he sure looks better in this than most people at this age in this day and age - wearing puffy, plastic-like, mass-manufactured coats and less-than-good-quality clothing. The way people dress (most people, at least) in these "modern" times, just makes me wonder if anyone knows what real class in an outfit is. This is surely a good example of it - even though back then it was commonplace.

Great photography. Sorry about the rant.

Beautiful. Makes me think of Boardwalk Empire.


Blogger J.Ro said ... (3:59 PM) : 

Nowadays, they don't allow you on the NJ boardwalk unless you're wearing an ill fitting shirt with an oversized logo.


Blogger the outfit diaries said ... (4:02 PM) :

Blogger xx said ... (2:29 AM) : 

What a great photo, really captures an emotion. Sometimes I truly feel like I was born at the wrong time, I'm such an old soul.


Blogger lollipop4598 said ... (2:39 AM) : 

Its a wonderfully adorable picture. But as to people having to dress in the itchy looking clothing of the day; No. Thanks. I don't want to iron on a hot day for a few hours before going out. Sounds time consuming. And i have never heard of a little boy that really wants to wear a pair of pulled up wool socks with no lycra even to make them bearable. Textiles are a lot better. you probably don't even want to THINK about the underthings people wore back then. I think the bras were built from titanium. It would be fun to force all the people who "want" things to go backwards to live like that, though.


Blogger Mars said ... (3:20 AM) : 

Photographs back then are so beautiful even without the help of retouching.

It was a time when children were elegant too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:38 AM) : 

How dapper! Oh for the gold old days when people had pride in how they presented themselves. Now it's just a bunch of slobs in tank tops, gym shorts and tattoos.


Blogger Secondhand Stella said ... (8:24 AM) : 

Wow, such a great photo!

My wife loves your photos, they are too lovely.


Anonymous IS THIS IT? models review said ... (8:44 AM) : 

Awww, great! I'd like to see more elegant and stylish little boys / girls around now...


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:14 AM) : 

When looking at photos like this it seems to me to remember old times (it seems because I was not even born at that time)when things were more clean, honest and a young boy was feeling the king of the world in such nice cloths. Maybe the past seems always better compared to the world we are living today, but this image let me feel happy, clean and in peace.
(sorry for my English, I hope I was able to trasmit what I'm feeling)
