Nancy Sinatra in go-go boots singing "These Boots Are Made For Waking" is an era-defining image and sound. No time capsule of the '60s would be complete without it.

The elder daughter of Frank Sinatra, Nancy was born on June 4, 1940 in Jersey City, NJ. In 1945, her father sang about her in the song "Nancy (With The Laughing Face)." Although she began her life in New Jersey, when she was a toddler, the family moved to California so Frank could pursue his acting career. In California, she took dancing, acting, piano, and voice lessons.
