Virginia, you're still beautiful; now with absolutely gorgeous white hair instead of dark.  Here's one of my photos from the era.

Yep, and MUCH younger too.  In addition to the longer hair I wore:  granny glasses (wires), midriff tops, bell bottoms and went bare footed as much as I could get away with-lol!  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the memories; at least of those instances I could fully remember.  Smiley Wink

I need to get my eyes examined: completely missed the fire place. Smiley Happy

 

Bell bots + bare feet = clean floor. Smiley Happy

Of course the bells had to be long enough that if I walked on water (fat chance---ha ha), the pants (nearly always jeans) would absorb water at least to a couple of inches above the hems.  Talk about a really clean floor.  Oh, brother...lol!

We were a little too young for the hippie movement.

 

Besides, we were in a fancy school (British: public school; American: private school), so we were kept in check.

 

We saw the seniors wear drainpipes, and I always wondered how long it took to put them on.

 

By the time we had become seniors, thankfully bell-bots had become the craze.

 

Anyway, I was more a yuppie than a hippie.

Woodstock at 50, in the words, and music, of those who were there

Of course it's my photo. It never occured to me you'd think otherwise. Here's the photo where it lives under a magnet on my embarrassingly messy-magneted refridgerator.

 

When I saw the photo you posted, I was reminded of this photo because it's a favorite. Yes, Ravindra, I was once young and my now-white hair black - as I said, those were the days.

Note the photo of the cool renticular cloud that looked like a flying saucer ... it hovered over Grand Lake (where I lived at the time) all day long without moving.

 

Let me know if you want any info about the two okras under the VW magnet. Smiley Happy

Definitely not as good or as on-point as Virginia's photo... But it's as close to "hippie" as farm kids get. (The sorority T-shirt wasn't mine.)IJL with a heifer.jpg
