Back to school!
Vintage ad from my collection
Today is the first day of school in these parts, so I couldn't resist sharing this wonderful vintage picture I scanned from an old ad for Alston School Photography. When I was a child, Alston was the school photographer used by all the local schools. This advertising pictured here would have been sent home with children to encourage the parents to order more photos for display or gifts. Funny how the children in the illustration all look as excited as their mom does! I can't remember that ever being the case at my house!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
