This June 1962 photograph was taken by my mother and shows me and my brother Iden in the kitchen of our home at 110 Dogwood Drive, Levittown Pennsylvania. It is an entirely posed picture of eight-year-old me replicating a 1955 photo
where my father washed me in the same sink. My brother really was washed in the kitchen sink when he was a baby, just like I had been. But I did not do the washing. My parents did. I think it was me who wanted there to be matching pictures for me and my brother, and so suggested to my mother, when she was washing him, that she get the camera and we create the picture again. My father was probably at work, which is why I got to be the washer. | Click image for Comments.
