Cool family photo

In the aftermath of my father-in-law's passing, we've been going through a lot of stuff and came across a ton of photos. This one is my hands-down favorite!

It's my husband's grandmother (my FIL's mother) standing outside a Florida motel in the late 50s/early 60s. I just love the neon sign behind her. And those shoes and that bag! Awesome!


  1. and look at the cool vintage railing on the stairs and 2nd floor behind her

  2. Although I seriously doubt it, I wonder if that motel is still in existence (and if so, hopefully it's not a crack hole). I love the handbag, dress and shoes. She doesn't look all that pleased to be standing there--wonder if she just had a fight with her hubby???? "Honey, I do NOT want to stand in front of that sign so you can take a darn picture! I feel silly!" Too bad--picture taken, and thank goodness so you have it to share with us.
