A friend found this at a thrift shop. On the back someone wrote "Harry's football team, High School, Rootstown, Ohio." I can't help but notice the size of the football and lack of helmets. I wonder if this was before helmets. View full size.
From the same spot with the group of kids, now the adults. Included in the cast are my grandparents, one of my great aunts, a great uncle, my great-grandparents, and a couple others I don't recognize. Taken around 1946. View full size.
"Taken in front of Viola's place on the 25th of June." Not sure who Viola is except a friend of my grandma's family. I'm guessing the lady is Viola. View full size.
Yes that is me (the short one with the puffy cheeks)with my proud parents on Mother's Day 1967. Likely taken at my aunt's house somewhere in the San Fernando Valley. I have more hair on my head back then than I do now! View full size.
Visit the exciting Idaho Power Company. 7000 horsepower. From the series of photos Webb/Eames trip across Idaho (they started in Burley). My grandmother is the one standing on the step on the left. I looked up Idaho Power, which is still around but no info about the Malad plant still being around. View full size.
My dad around 8 years old or so, which would make this around 1946. He's in the back row on the right. My Aunt Susan is second from left, front row. Not sure exactly where it was taken other than somewhere in Los Angeles. I am thinking the other kids are cousins but I don't know their names. Or just friends. Just amazed you can get a group of kids to sit still while you snap a picture of them. I'd love to have the car in the background. View full size. [Where is this? - Dave]
