This is a photo that speaks of the old times. Far Guy and his sister sixty three years ago…
Photo taken in 1952
Awww isn’t he cute? Behind the cute smile lurks a very active boy who would be harnessed to the clothes line…but would learn to unhook himself and go play with neighbor kids and then go back home and hook himself back up again just like nothing happened.
They are sitting in a big old chair ( he thinks the chair was dark green) right where the television would have a permanent spot for years and years. In 1952 there was no television in the house or it was in a different spot. You can see the doorbell chimes…not that anyone ever used the door bell. Eventually the back door bell would stop working and no one ever used the front door.
To the right is the coat closet that was kitty corner to the front door that no one ever used.
In the hall off to the left there is a small table that sits right below the telephone. The phone number back then was 261J. About that same time my phone number was 12F120…country numbers must have been longer than city numbers.
Did you have one of those old phone numbers? Do you remember what it was?
