Mom & Me early 1960's

My mom was a single parent during the 60's and she was always working to make sure that her family was always taken care of. On 7/1/12, I was contacted by the Getty Images team via the Flickreenos regarding interest in this photo! They wanted a high resolution of this photo, but I think is the best resolution I can get out of this old photo!

    Your mom looks lovely. She also looks like she's/ was a strong woman
    you could tell by her face.

    Great picture...Can I say I love the processing? ; ] People work hard in photoshop these days to get that fantastic retro look you know... : ]

    Thank you for a great comment Teresa K.! I don't remember what kind of camera it was, but I think my sister took the photo! I actually remember riding in this car. I don't know what model it was, but the front half of the roof was made of tinted glass and I would always stare upward and watch the sky through it.

    I saw this car only in tv series about the 60's! Wonderful!!!

    Great shot, a beautiful memory. In Italy we say "Mom is always mom"..
