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!

Happy back-to-school, everyone!


  1. Love the print but I don't remember anyone in my school liking their school photos. ;0)

  2. Nope, me either.


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
