Old Photographs Part II
Ist Row: Me. Sharon (Far Guys Cousin), Caroline
2nd Row: Barry (Far Guys Cousin), Corrine, Danny
This was taken by my Mother on May 8, 1953, I would have been about 20 months old. This picture was taken on a farmstead just about a mile and a half from where we live now. It is a deserted farmstead now, a place for a Corporate Farm to park equipment. I remember the old brown stucco house, with a huge screened in porch, and a massive front step perfect to line up children on for a birthday party picture. It was Corinne's birthday she was three years old. Recently I had the opportunity to share this picture with her, she had never seen it before. That is a thought for all you old picture buffs..do you have an opportunity to share some photos of friends ..photos that they never knew existed. Perhaps!
What kind of a child holds their dolly upside down for a picture? (Will she ever be a GOOD Mother?) All little girls love their dolls..right?..me.. not so much. Most of my dolls were pretty new looking all the time. I preferred the paper dolls, carefully cutting out their wardrobes, able to change their clothing in the blink of an eye. However I do recall dressing up kittens and puppies in doll clothing...
Do you have a caption for my old photograph today? If so please share it by leaving a comment!:)
Update: My letter to the editor about Trigeminal Neuralgia appeared today in the local paper..success at last!
