Pedal Pushers

December 5, 2014

In the throes of photo reviewing–for Christmas card, for 2015 calendars, for custom jigsaw puzzles, for Uncle Bud’s 90th birthday, for sweet collages of aging aunts and uncles…up to my digital eyeballs in photos–vintage and current–and came upon this.

So it’s today’s photo. A bit of a cop out, but hey.


By way of explanation: me in corduroy pedal pushers*, cotton knit sleeveless, breezy summer do, and, out of view, fashion flip flops, back then called go-aheads. I’m going to guess about four years old, on patio in the backyard (at house where my mom still lives).

Pedal pushers are calf-length trousers that were popular during the 1950s and the early 1960s (says Wikipedia).
