Groovy Rhodes Poster Child
I was perusing through online photos and came across this long, lost picture that I had intended to share with The Neighborhood last year when I did an extensive article on Tacoma's famous Rhodes Department Store and my grandma's continued involvement in preserving her former employer's value, history, and alumni connections. I attempted to post this photo (amongst others), but our blog was crashing continuously and I gave up.
So, here's yours truly, in my 1970's glory, as the poster child for Rhodes. Well, not really. I was one of the winners of a photo contest that the Rhodes portrait studio held. I think I was probably five years old in the picture. I love those little touches; the plastic daisy, my crooked bangs, and my groovy green clothes.
I have more great historic photos of Rhodes, courtesy of my grandma. More to come! Readers and bloggers, break out those Rhodes memories and share!
