Woodstock, the original, and re-created

From top to bottom: (1) Sally in the farmer’s pond at Woodstock. She is the standing girl with the tan lines. Even though her back is turned, her mother was still able to recognize her when the photo appeared on the cover of LIFE. (2) Sally is the girl on the right in front. (3) She sent me this photo to give you a sense of the Woodstock crowd. (4) My daughter and her “Woodstock” rock band, 2018. (5) The kids pretending to be the Beatles, whose music they all still love, even though they were born after the millennium.

Characterizations: been there, right on!


  1. Suzy says:

    Thanks for posting these pictures! I remember seeing that top one on the cover of LIFE Magazine when it came out.

    I would be happy to show you how to integrate pictures into your stories if you like, but I also think in this case having them as a separate post is fun!

  2. Wow, you remember that photo? I have to tell Sally. I love that fully clothed photographer at the right of the top photo. I think you can find his photos in Google images. Next time I will try to integrate the photos into the story, but I was proud of myself for even managing to post them.

  3. John Zussman says:

    Oh, I remember that photo too. Never suspected that I knew someone in it! But I can’t believe that Sally’s mother recognized her from that view. I love your daughter’s photos too.

    I love these photos. Thanks for sharing them.
