This is such a cool retro photo.
I love your Dad's stylish hair style.
Maybe we will meet up when you are next in the city?

Another great shot! Your brother looks a bit apprehensive. Were they about to go into the barbershop or had they just come out? Have a great weekend!

I sure don't remember having this picture taken, but I do remember the barbershop, and going their with Dad and our brother on many occasions. This may have been my first "official" haircut ever, and I think there are other pics of the real event. To this day I use a barbershop that reminds me of this one, except now I'm older than the guys cutting (what's left of) my hair! Thanks for posting this one, lil sis, and bringing back a pleasant memory. Luv ya! Big Bro

Love old photos too. And I see it brought your big bro a nice memory. Very nice, Lily. (And I was going to say what Elizabeth said.)

Excellent vintage photos. My aunt recently sent me a bunch of vintage photos and I've scanned them to put on Facebook. :-)
