My brother, age 9, working with a set of color pencils at our grandfather's house in Calpella, California. Four days later, he was in the hospital in nearby Ukiah having an emergency appendectomy, while 95 miles to the south in Marin County I was in another hospital being born. As our hometown paper headlined the item, "Plenty Excitement." My sister took the photo with a box Brownie. Scanned from the original "116" 2½ x 4¼ negative. | Click image for Comments. | Home | Browse All Photos
