Treasure Chest Thursday - Jimmie and Billie

Since posting the "photo booth" photo of my Mom at about 12 in 1930 last week, I came across two others this week. This first one is of my younger brother, Jimmie, and I (Mom called me Billie for many years). This is probably 1945.



The second is of my Dad, at about age 21, which would have been in 1936... he and Mom started dating in late summer of that year...


Families are Forever!  ;-)

  4. Very true...a remarkable family resemblance. You take me back to my childhood with those photo booths and the strips of 4 or 5 little snapshots.

  5. Thank you each for your comments. These little photos are fun, aren't they! We'd really like to know who and what they were looking at, of course!

  6. I agree...these photos are fun. And what really was going on at the time. I think these are what creative writing courses are made of.

    Thanks for putting a smile on my face!

  7. Bill ... I can almost smell the 'rotten eggs' that one had to endure after the photos came out of the photo booths! What a lovely post - you took me back to my childhood. Terrific! Keep them coming ... Blessings, Cindy
