The popularity of Egytian style began with the discovery of
King Tut's tomb in 1922

1960s Space Age


Uther & Pearle Jones, my grandparents
Seattle World's Fair 1962
My grandparents embraced all things modern, so it is not surprising that they were at the Seattle World's Fair in 1962.  

They were always stylish.  My grandfather in his creased wool slacks, top-buttoned shirt and cool aviator glasses.  My grandmother in her flattering-length, blue tailored dress with double-button jacket and top-clasp handbag.  

Contemporary style at the Century 21 Exposition. 



Have a stylish weekend!
