FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

1971

San Francisco

Fisherman's Wharf

San Francisco makes me think of my mom and dad. When we were little, we would always take drives over there, and my mom and dad would always get the shrimp cocktail at Fisherman's Wharf. My sister and I would bring a pillow as if we were going on a long trip, and my dad would always have his Bit O' Honey candy, and my mom would snack on her peanut brittle. It's funny because I can't stand those two things!!

In this picture are my mom and I on the left, and my aunt and my sister on the right. I was two, and my sister was four years old.

Do you see those buildings in the background? Those two restaurants are still open to this day!

What is also pretty cool about this picture is the cop car on the left side! Is that so old school or what?!

Love that cop car!

We're on our way to another Fisherman's Wharf this weekend... maybe I'll post some photos next week. :)

(Yes, I'm still using my old camera... haven't really had time to sit down and really sift through the research for a new camera yet.)

Alicia, you were so cute. I've been to Alioto's Restaurant on Fishserman's Wharf many times. And it's funny because I graduated high school in 1971. I love how our blogging world brings so many of us of different ages together.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

Hi Alicia,
I think this is a great idea, so I'm happy to join the fun! I was 13when your photo was taken. A teenager already. Hmmm, I have to admit the style of the cars look familiar. Yikes!
