My Nanny, Part 1

Nanny is on the left in this picture and the one below!

Here are the first of the pictures I want to share with you of my Nanny! There are so many that I'm going to be posting them in parts. I'll start with part one, which is pictures starting from the mid 1930's up to the early 1940's. My Nanny's name was Barbara Tucker. She was a freckled face redhead with the cutest laugh I've ever heard!


A high school pic!





Nanny is second from the left here!

I found all of these pictures in an album from when Nanny was a teenager. She had written the cutest little phrases under each photo! Next I'll be sharing more photos from that album, which I think might be some of my favorites! I hope you enjoy this little series I'll be doing!

PS: Thank you all so much for the sweet comments on my last two posts! Some of you asked were I got my bathing suit. Silly me forgot to post it, sorry! It's vintage from the 1950's and I bought it from the lovely shop 1385 on Etsy.

She's adorable!!!!!!!!! and sportsy for that time too! That's awesome. Is your nanny related to any NJ folk because I know some Tuckers and they look similar! but I know that is a common last name too. oh well. I love these shots.

These photos are absolutely beautiful!! I find that photos of real people are so much more a part of history than styled photos in magazines, they tell us so much about what life was actually like back then!
