I don’t know if 1958 counts as “the distant past.” But for me it does. I found this photo as we were culling pictures from my recently deceased aunt Gladys’ photo collection. Pictured from left to right: Clarence (my dad), Harold (Dad’s brother), Mary (Harold’s wife, Mildred (Dad’s sister), Gladys (sister) and Bernice (my mom). Front row: me.
Do you like the suspenders? They were apparently fashionable because I have seen more than one photo of me and my brother wearing suspenders. Or maybe my mom just bought pants that we could grow in to?
Anyway, this photo was taken in Sioux Falls outside the visitors’ center of John Morrel Meat Packing Company.
