Do you have old Easter pictures of Generation X from the 1960s, 70s, 80s or 90s? I’d love to feature them as a tribute to the life and times of America’s 13th Generation. Contact me using the form at the bottom of this page or email me your submissions at jennifer [at] tambourinepr [dot] org.

Collecting Photos

One of my favorite things to do is collect old snapshots, faded photographs and 35 mm slides, etc., and share them with readers. I especially love old Easter pictures of Generation X! Here’s a magnificent photo of girls in hats decorated for the annual Easter parade (1970s).
