In 2014, I will be participating in #tbt courtesy of the Epson Expression Premium XP-810 Small–in–One printer, the ultimate choice for scanning and printing. Ultra powerful and ultra slim, it produces stunning borderless photos and documents quickly and affordably. Featuring the ultimate in wireless printing, the XP-810 makes it easier than ever to print from your iPad, iPhone, tablet or smartphone, whether in your home or out and about.
The Towers Portrait Studio, circa 1980. Towers, operating as Bonimart in Quebec, was a Canadian discount department store chain owned by the Oshawa Group, a now-defunct grocery retailer and distributor. In 1990, Towers’ 51 stores were purchased by Zellers for $181.5 million and converted to the Zellers name or closed.
The photograph on the right was a “freebie” – an 8 x 10″ portrait included in a photo package that cost a whopping $10.00.
I adore my sweet pink dress, and the Raggedy Ann-style doll peeking though in the background. I love the decidedly sepia-tone of the picture. But my very favourite thing? My hairstyle, of course. Years later, I would spend a lot of time trying to flip out my hair in an effort to duplicate a look that came so naturally to me as toddler.
And if you feel like mentioning the heart-stopping resemblance between Reid and myself, I won’t mind. My too-large-for-my-face eyes and geeky smile could be a throwback to two years ago, when Reid was a toddler himself.
