Vintage photos of:
A Sunday morning circa 1964. I would fetch the Sunday paper so my father could read me the funnies. "Peanuts" and "Dennis the Menace" were my favorites. It is probably winter -- my "footy" pajamas would have been necessary in East Texas only in the coldest months. The house was built in 1957. Note the casement window crank and the Danish Modern headboard. I wish I still had my dad's Eames recliner and some of my mother's "mod" furniture. Polaroid scan. View full size.
