From Mom’s Diary… 1941 - July 1 - My 2nd Birthday

From Mom’s Diary… 1941
In 1941, this was my 2nd birthday. We lived on a rented farm on the county line between Carroll and Greene County, north east of Coon Rapids, Iowa.

I’ll post occasional interesting tidbits.

My comments:

Always wondered about the context of this birthday photo. Neat to read about it.

Families are Forever! ;-)
