Old Photo Friday


My sisters and I at Bear Mountain, NY, probably 1960 or early 1961.  At that time, we lived in Teaneck, NJ, and used to go to Bear Mountain pretty regularly.  I'm not sure why, as we did not ski, hike, or do other winter sports.  But I do remember it was fun, and there are very few pictures of the three of us, so this one is special.

I also remember thinking that my jacket was quite the thing.  No one else had a plaid jacket with a hood, you know ...

Have a cozy weekend!

You all look cold, but still have big smiles. (And your jacket really was quite the thing!)

I had a jacket just like that one and loved it to death. I think mine was red but it's hard to tell because all our old photos are B&W.

Somehow as a child I could tolerate cold, snow, wind, and just generally miserable! Not quite the same as an adult.

Wow, Bear Mountain! I grew up in River Vale, NJ, just on the NY state border by Nanuet and Pearl River. Our Senior Skip Day was a trip to Bear Mountain and my father owned a small speedboat that we used to take up the Hudson from Piermont up to West Point. What a great picture.
