The photos of your grandparents are beautiful. I really enjoy viewing old photos, even if I don't know the subjects. Such a story in each one, very cool.

Even in black and white they and the scenery in background look so beautiful and sophisticated.
May 15, 2010 at 9:26 am
It's amazing how fit they were.

Love this whole vintage series, as it just goes to show, everyone was so young at one stage, and it's always interesting to hear the story that goes with the photograph.
I'm a mean street kid.

They both look so stylishly elegant. What a beautiful couple of pictures!
I love looking at the vintage photos. There's just something about them
May 15, 2010 at 10:55 am
This pic is wonderful!

These are not the grandparents of The Sartorialist–whenever he posts vintage photos, he uses the text of the person who sent the photo. That being said, these people are incredibly stylish and sexy.

There is something regal about old black and white photos. And of course, that day in time when everyone dressed up and looked fabulous no matter where they were or where they were going.snappy xhttp://www.snappylifestyle.blogspot.com

He reminds me a lot of Jeremy Irons in Granada series of Brideshead Revisited.
May 15, 2010 at 12:33 pm
Lovely. Style is beyond fashion or time, it's ageless, and these photos of two beautiful people are the perfect example of it.
May 15, 2010 at 12:34 pm
Too bad people don't dress this elegantly and stylish anymore. The world would be an even more beautiful place to look at.
I can't believe the legs on the grandfather in the second picture. They both have these long, elegant limbs which certainly helps. She looks very tanned and relaxed.
May 15, 2010 at 12:50 pm
Biarritz has not change at all !
May 15, 2010 at 12:52 pm
Omg your grandmother looked so nice on the rocks. It's just like she is posing for a photoshoot.:P
May 15, 2010 at 1:57 pm
Alexandra's grandparents were lovely.
I was standing right where they were in 2005… Biarritz hasn't changed TOO much, which is refreshing :)
May 15, 2010 at 2:09 pm
This is p u r e style .
May 15, 2010 at 2:31 pm
May 15, 2010 at 2:32 pm
i wish everything was still like that…
May 15, 2010 at 2:54 pm
I love the feeling of these photos…simple, relaxed and so stylish!
May 15, 2010 at 3:18 pm
Your grandparents were very beautiful! So slender and toned. Nowadays some people would suspect them of having an eating disorder :( Oh I forgot, they also look SO stylish!!!
May 15, 2010 at 3:23 pm
I like the photos. They look so peaceful to me.

I love the first photo!
May 15, 2010 at 4:18 pm
Simply stunning. Thank you A for sharing and S for setting up the opportunity for people to share. Again, stunning.
May 15, 2010 at 4:24 pm
Such lovely photos! Thank you for sharing…
May 15, 2010 at 4:27 pm
Yes, graceful and elegant are the words for these two.
May 15, 2010 at 4:54 pm
Absolutely gorgeous! They were a stunning couple.
May 15, 2010 at 5:33 pm
so romantic i love these
May 15, 2010 at 7:00 pm
Really happy to see an old pic of Biarritz, my birthplace (not in the 30's ;)
May 15, 2010 at 8:47 pm
What did they do for a living to get those physiques? We are doing something wrong today!
May 16, 2010 at 1:20 am
It's hard to think of any other time in all of history that beat the 1930's for elegance of line. Here's hoping it'll come back some day.
May 16, 2010 at 3:19 am
What strikes me about old, vintage photos is that people were so much slimmer then. But not anorexic-thin! They were no fast foods and no over-the-counter instant MSG-laden, oily foods so people ate much healthier. Sigh. To have those bodies naturally. :)
May 16, 2010 at 6:02 am
May 16, 2010 at 10:21 am
These are lovely. I love her point on the differences in their hair. :)
I'm really enjoying reading all the stories that come with these posts.
May 16, 2010 at 3:01 pm
These pictures make me think of those from Jacques-Henri Lartigue in the 30's… Beautiful !
May 17, 2010 at 4:18 am
stunning couple! love the long limbs…very 20's/30's!
May 17, 2010 at 4:37 am
Such beautiful slender bodies, positively yogic!
Yes: certainly says a lot about changes in diet and mod-cons.
May 17, 2010 at 6:53 am
They both look so beautiful because their bodies are so slim and toned. The look very much alike, indeed "a couple".
May 17, 2010 at 8:15 am
hello Scott, thank you for posting the photo of my grandparents ;-)it almost makes them live again !and thanks to all for your nice comments.Alexandra
May 17, 2010 at 10:34 am
I'm suspicious that the grandmother's "hair" in the first picture is a sculpted hat of some sort. It is far to regular to be wind-blown hair… and having that much wind it seems would have changed aspects of their disposition and other details in the photo.
May 17, 2010 at 1:00 pm
The second photo is particularly good. The contrasts and composition are excellent.
May 17, 2010 at 11:14 pm
They are very elegant. And very fit. Both of them have astounding legs !
May 18, 2010 at 4:13 am
Breathtakingly wonderful. You can tell how happy they are. Very touching, very real, in one word – beautiful!
May 18, 2010 at 9:59 am
Belle plages que celles de Bandol et Sanary-sur-Mer. Mis
May 18, 2010 at 12:33 pm
i love these vintage photos! beautiful! xo
May 19, 2010 at 6:46 am
They are so slender, as are many in your vintage pics. I wish that would come back into fashion in my country where 50% are overweight or obese according to the radio this week. (Australia)
May 19, 2010 at 4:03 pm
I can almost feel the sun warming her brown shoulders. Stunning.
May 19, 2010 at 9:42 pm
That is what struck me also was how slender and healthy they look, you just don't see that as often these days. My honeymoon photos I was hiding behind a sarong. (10 lbs), but back then they ate much healthier and hence look much more trim and fit. Ah..the good old days.
Great elegant photos of them! The good life.

Super cool. Isn't it fabulous how his swimming trunks are so high-waisted yet incredibly short? The exact opposite of what is worn today, where everyone shows the top of their arse and no thigh at all.

Hey it is really cool pic and the man looks like Mr Bean .. lol

Aw, this was a really nice post. In thought I wish to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and precise effort to make an excellent article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and under no circumstances seem to get something done.
February 4, 2012 at 4:45 pm
wish we all still dressed like this!
June 25, 2012 at 9:38 pm
Incredibly elegant couple. Very fit. Extremely relaxed considering World War II was just around the corner. Perfectly matched couple. Scenery is breathtaking. Right time, right place. Great in black & white.
