    I guess I am old fashioned, I liked it back in these days when girls wore dresses, and boys wore pants. And the boys pants were worn at the waist, and not half way down to their knees. I know every generation has their own style, I have to admit, I wore hip-hugger bell-bottoms, and paisley shirts, and had hair down to my shoulders back in the day. I guess the 40’s and 5o’s style makes me think that it was a simpler time, but I’m sure they had their troubles also. Great group of school pics, Diane…Thanks
