Mexico Monday redux, Week 7

I shot this photo of Jenny, from Bristol, England, in July 1972 at the TraveLodge in El Paso, Texas

My slides this week date from 1972 and ’73, although unfortunately I can’t offer much more information about them. I think I mentioned before that Frank Gonzales had the women wear a different color of dress each year — one year bright orange, one year bright green, and so on — and it would be so great to have a list connecting each year with its color! I do believe the pale pink dresses appeared around 1974, a year that my dad made the trip to Mexico on his own.

This photo looks so much better than the first time I shared it in February 2018!

It was safer to drink soda than tap water, so we consumed plenty of Coke, Pepsi, Fanta, and Squirt

For more casual occasions, it was fine to wear a mix of colors
