This is a photo of Far Guy's big sister Jan. She had a birthday last week, she got older. This photo was taken in 1951 when she was six years old.
Far Guy's sister is a retired teacher and lives far far away in southern Indiana with her husband of 41 years, and a dog named Ernie ..he is a Silky Terrier. They have one daughter who is unmarried..so they are not grandparents yet.
She is a pretty good sister, she only dropped Far Guy on his head once when he was little. She is a good sister in law even though sometimes I irritate her with my blog...not with this one though, I never actually mentioned how old she is. She is a good aunt, and our children were both spoiled rotten by her. When they were little she would visit and read to them for hours.
I chose this photo, because I think it is really cute. I wondered about her blouse and the skirt with shoulder straps, were they "store bought" or "homemade" Far Guys Mom was a very accomplished seamstress. The fancy collar on the blouse could have been made by her maternal Grandmother, or it may have been purchased and attached to the blouse. I believe the buttons and their placement say "homemade." The wool skirt with straps, was very typical of the early 1950's and very fashionable back then. A proper slip was a necessity as wool would make you very itchy:)
