The main reason I posted this picture is because of the way we were dressed. This is a picture of the girls in the 8th grade. Notice the length of their skirts?
Most have on saddle oxfords but some have loafers. Socks folded down. Very, very different from young ladies today. I am not saying they don't look pretty, just totally opposite from today's teens. I am not sure, but I believe that is me on the second row, 4th from the left as you look at the picture.
This picture was taken at my cousin's 16th birthday party in her back yard, this past Saturday.
Look at the hair-do in the title picture and then look at the current. It seems like all young ladies, or a vast majority of them, have long straight hair. Back in the day, it looked medium length and curly. Home perms were all in!
There were no dress codes - none were needed.
TEEN AGE GIRLS (AND BOYS TOO)!
“Some are young people who don't know who they are, what they can be or even want to be. They are afraid, but they don't know of what. They are angry, but they don't know at whom. They are rejected and they don't know why. All they want is to be somebody. ”
