Mini Skirt Monday #66: Found Photos

unknown woman

Dust off the ol' photo album, flip to the pages with photos taken around 1969, and you're going to see miniskirts.... lots of miniskirts.  Sure, the photos will be a bit blurry, the flash will obscure a huge spot on the photograph, and the framing/composition of the picture will be poor..... but that's what gives them character.  These are the real deal.  Before Photoshop could make everything look so nice and "perfect".

If you can look beyond the miniskirt, it's also fun to take notice of some of the surroundings and fashions.  For instance, check the faux stone wall covering in the photo above. Nice.

  1. You just know the guy was trying to get an up-skirt of his wife, while she is more interested in shooting him an icy gaze because she has to do all the work taking care of the baby.

    My parents had fake brick on the top part of one wall in the living room of our first house. It was some sort of embossed plastic panels about 2'x4'. That was from circa 1963 or earlier. Then in 1969 they built a new house and put fake brick on one small wall, but they were individual plastic pieces that you stuck onto some concrete-looking rubber cement type stuff.

  2. The first photo also has a cool wooden fish and one of those cheap TV stands. For those who think everything was made better back then, they've forgotten those lousy metal-tube furniture things.

    Armpit is so totally right about the photo with the black mini dress.

    4th from the bottom: Is that a cougar clock? Does that have some significance?

  3. That wooden fish is fantastic. Looks like it's some sort of dish for serving food in. And it looks like it's inside an aquarium with a bed of blue gravel.

    I used to have a B&W TV with a "brass" colored metal tube stand from my grandma, and a "brass" colored metal record rack that held about 30 records. At least you could fix broken metal things. Today's plastic things are rarely fixable.

  5. I like the photo with the girl in the blue dress and the guy in the suit standing before the curtains. I have a photo of me with a girl in a mini-skirt from right around then taken before my junior prom.

    I'm positive that's the case. Believe me, I've been in that exact situation!

    We had a neighbor who would routinely wear minis, and I remember very fondly whenever she and her husband came over, and how I could feel my hormones starting to carbonate in her presence, lol.
