Your dad holding you late 1950s to early 1960s, your mum in the background. Possibley you or an elder brother playing in the yard

Yes, I was just staring at the wringer washer too. Ours liked to walk across the kitchen floor. It terrified me. It was the house monster.

It looks like early fifties to me. I wish they didn't make photos so small back then because I keep squinting at both pictures, trying to see something of the woman who's only partially in the first picture. It makes me wonder why she isn't in it fully. In the second picture, I can see Mom is keeping an eye on the little guy, but who's that sitting on the porch on the right side? And who's taking the pictures? Grandpa? Is that maybe Grandma who's hardly in the first picture? Was this a multi-generational household? Money was tight but that sure didn't preclude keeping clean, neat, and proud.

There's the aura of a small farm about the place, though I can't say why it feels this way.

These photos spoke to me.

I agree with aladyforty - except for the arm through the washer bit. Ouch!

Default The 50's

Based on the woman's skirt and top, the period is the 50's.

I'm going for late 40's, maybe 48 or 49 or early 50's no later than 53.

I will be out of town for awhile and may not get to post, so I am going early. The first is me in 1954. that is my father and the girl is my 12 yr. old sister. The other is me in 1955 and that is my Mother on the porch.

When you get back, tell us what you didn't have time to tell now. Where is it, what was life like?
