Me as a 50’s Baby.

The photo is of me as a baby was  taken by my uncle at he’s studio in Alberton, South-Africa. The dress and bonnet were made by my other aunt, my mom’s sister. You can see more photos and information here.

What do you remember from the 1950’s ?

My mom had an electric washing machine with a built in wringer, which used to make a chugga-chugga sound and moved across the floor while washing.

  1. Sjoe Linda, dis omtrent nostalgies! Lyk my ons het altwee hierdie week so ‘n teruggryp na die verlede beleef. Ek wil ook nog foto’s van my ouers hierdie week plaas. Jou ma se sandale is alweer hoogmode en jy was die opvreetbaarste dogtertjie! Daardie kappie en uitrusting is so oulik.

    • Ek het gedink jy sal dit geniet, Dina.
      Ja, dit is nogal ‘n toeval 😉
      Ek sien daarna uit, ek lief die ou fotos.
      My ma was ‘n voet korter as ek en het baie klein voete gehad, sy kon daardie oop -toon hoe-hak skoene dra.
      Ek is gelukkig dat ek soveel fotos het en dat ek in tyd so veel as moontlik i.v.m die fotos probeer uitvind het.

  2. Dis ‘n pragtige babafoto van jou Linda. Jou ma was ‘n baie aantreklike vrou. Ons het ook so ‘n wasmasjien gehad (was dit ook ‘n Hoover of dink ek nou aan die stofsuier?). My broer se arm het in die draaier beland, want hulle het altyd daarmee gespeel wanneer my ma wasgoed gedoen het.

    • Dankie, ek is gelukkig dat ek dit het.
      Sy was en sy het altyd haar hare mooi versorg, grimering aangesit, haar naëls gedoen, ens.
      Hie-hie, ek kan nie onthou wat die maak was nie.
      Sjoe, ek weet nie hoe kinders daardie jare oorleef het nie, kan jy onthou hoe ons op die kar se agterste venster gelê het ?

    • Ons kan baie gelukkig wees, daar is heelwat mense van ons geslag wat maar min fotos het ;-(
      Vandag neem mense duisende fotos, maar ek wonder hoeveel daarvan sal oorleef.
