Wistful Wednesday: 1945

In  May of 1945 a little girl was born.  She would be Far Guys big sister but she didn’t know it yet. For almost five years she would be an only child.

1945

Here she is in the summer of 1945 with her parents.  She is all bundled up with her hat on even though it looks like a warm Minnesota day.  Most likely she smells like baby powder.

Here she is with her baby brother ( Far Guy) in the summer of 1950.  She looks quite happy to have a baby brother:)

  2. Such cute pictures! I like her socks with the buckles. My little sister was born in 1950, and I was already seven, so we are all of an age. :-)

  8. I think back in those days, parents thought it was healthy to bundle up babies even in the summer. My mother always urged me to put a hat on my babies. Just love those pix!!
    Peace,

  9. Great photos. Long ago, I hoisted up my little brother and set him on the kitchen counter while I got him a drink. He fell off and had to get three stitches under his chin. So I believe Far Guy when he says his sister dropped him!

  10. How did you get your signature onto those photos? I just happened to be browsing through my blog list today and discovered I've had a LOT of visits to one particular photo. I should prob'ly learn how to add a signature mark...

    Thanks for sharing...and giving Far Guy some fodder for comment. Miss you guys.

  12. Great to imagine the stories with the pictures. Sibling relationships at this age are a guess. Our parents tell us what went on. When our parents are gone the stories die.

  13. Although my childhood was full of constant terror, I had a big brother who dearly loved me. There is NOTHING like a brother.
