My mom. November 1957.
I think November is probably the date of the photo developing because my mom lived in Minnesota. I doubt they had their almost one year old playing in the grass in November in Minnesota. Brrrr!
This honestly doesn’t look like Mama to me. But as usual, its the extras that make this picture fun–what is she holding? It looks like food! Maybe that’s why they took the picture? Also, look in the background. What’s the net-thing? A clothesline? And is that a table next to it? What’s it full of? And for some reason that stripe on her shoes is interesting to me!
I’m always so intrigued by the things the photographer wasn’t focusing on. It gives a fuller story to the photo.
If you have a retro black and white picture to share please leave your link in the comments so we can all see!
