A Sweet and delightful pic, V., but an Easter Parade and no Frances Gumm? Fer shame!
More seriously, photographs like this often make me wonder what happened to those children. Frozen moments but what happened after? And wouldn’t it be interesting if somewhere out there in the ether were images of them at other points in their lives? Okay, maybe “interesting” is the wrong word 🙂
In movies, though, we get to see actors over decades sometimes which can be lovely, sobering, or even *frightening* – as in “Good God, what has he/she done to his/her face?! Lon Chaney lives!”, Ramblin, R
I’ll dig and see what we can come up with for “Easter Parade” (1948)…
Woo! But don’t put yourself out, I’d feel like a heel for making a dumb joke… Love these photos.
I found a couple behind the scenes…
Do you still have Easter Parades in the US?
Yours ever enquiringly

Do you know, I don’t think they do! Last Easter we had brunch at Disneyland in Club 33 and afterwards I sat in the park with my other friends – who can’t tolerate the wild rides – and watched everyone mill by in jeans and t-shirts. It was not a fashion parade by any means 😉
The Dandy supposes they have gone the way of Whitsun Walks – did you ever have those, now that would be a photograph, when I think think of the way we were togged up. The Amish would have blushed for our lack of fashion sense.
The Perfumed Dandy
The seventh Sunday after Easter, I had to look it up! Wikipedia has a picture taken in Manchester 2010 with the clerics all in crimson – very festive.
Yes, it the old world, there is still a school mid term break that bares the name, the dates do not always correspond.
I will see if I can find a link to the kind of garb we wore….
Whitsun Walks; please tell more theperfumeddandy.
