My mother’s sister Harriet came to visit our new house in Princeton, New Jersey and took a whole roll of 35mm film featuring our family and the new rooms we had. In this portrait of the sewing room my mother placed me in front of her to show off the jumper and blouse she had designed and made. The strange looking pocket on it was apparently a concession to my taste. I liked having pockets, so she knew that if she designed outfits with big pockets I would wear them. The jumper was tan velveteen and it looks like there were dinosaurs on the shirt. On her lapel is a gold-tone scatter pin that I loved. I do not remember if it was a cat or mouse, but it had a jointed tail that hung down and would swing.
