Mom & Me early 1960's

    Newer Older

    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!

    stomachfluid, littlepinkplasticbag, and 5 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      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"..
