I know some of these pictures they have probably never seen.
So today I am starting with mostly pictures of me. Then as I go along on future posts there will be pictures of my brother, parents, grandparents, and of course my kids :)
The majority of the pictures in this post were taken in Davenport, Iowa where I was born and raised. Also, they were taken back in the day before digital photos. Most were taken with old Brownie cameras. And the pictures from back then were usually black and white and printed on paper that had little scalloped edges.
This first picture was taken in 1955. I'm guessing I was about 6-9 months old. Not sure but that's my best guess judging by the length of my hair and my size.
This picture is my mom Elva. It was taken at Christmas time 1958. I remember that we lived in an upstairs apartment on West Second Street in Davenport near where the main post office is now in 2011. We didn't come from a well to do family so I usually remember the "good" Christmases. This was one of the good ones because I remember getting a doll that was as tall as me and she had hair that you could comb and she had her own wooden bed to sleep in. I think my dad made the doll bed. Wish I had a picture of that :(
Well, that's it for this round of reminiscing. Will try to do part 2 soon!
