The apple doesn't fall

far rom the tree. Obviously the tot gets his strut from Mommy! Love the playfulness of youth.

Thank you!

Today, 9/11, was a rough day. I had so many students who lost their parents that day. Then, I saw this wonderful photograph that somehow makes the world "right" today. Thanks Shorpy for the smiles!


The best allegory photo of this 1950s time period, perhaps of that whole period between WWII and The Vietnam War.


This photo makes me so incredibly happy!

Likely in Decatur, Illinois

Because we hear they're like that in Decatur, Illinois.

I'm Outta Here

I think the kid is angry about the sudden neglect.

This picture made my day!

Everything about it is perfect -- the near kiss, the kick, the stomping baby. Sex and fun. Love it!

Brings back memories

Remember the days when the air was clean and sex was dirty.

Grownups Are Weird

The kid will be back after the icky part.

Great shot

I love the poses. Especially the little baby boomer in the back.


Sums up a generation, doesn't it. A really great picture. Very spontaneous and alive. Thanks, Dave.

Funnies Girl

This reminds me of the comic strip "Rose Is Rose" -- Rose is always kissing her husband (or vice versa) in unusual positions, and their child, Pasquale, is usually underfoot someplace.

Looks like Baby

Is going to have a sibling in the near future.
