Pre-flight Days, the 1950s
As promised, the last little installment of my "Vintage Mom" series. I've skipped arpound as I discover different photo albums-- we started with the 1960s, then went to the 1970s. These span the period of the mid to late 1950s, right up until my mom joined Philipine Airlines, met my dad and the rest is history. It's been really fun going through all these old photographs but a little melancholic as well for some reason. Between now and then literally a lifetime has passed, we're getting ready to celebrate her 70th birthday in a few weeks, the reason I started gathering photos to begin with. Sprawled out on my living room floor right now is a giant number 70 photo collage that has all these pictures and then tons more, if it turns out as planned I'll share the finished product here in a few weeks.
