Although this photo is dated November 1953, I believe that’s when the roll of film was developed, not necessarily when this picture was taken.
I have no memory of the photo, so I can’t say anything about it. Assuming that it was taken sometime in late 1953, I would have been four years old and Reed, my uncle, would have been seven. I can tell from the wall paper that it was taken in the Great Stone House where we lived on my grandfather’s farm.
Were we showing off some new clothing? Were we on our way to some special event? A wedding, perhaps?
I can’t really say anything more about it.
