Dave?

So, is that YOU in the corner, being the pesky little brother? Your sister looks wonderful! Did she and your mom make the dress?

[This was way before I came along. The slides I've posted in the Kodachrome galleries were found on eBay and in thrift shops. - Dave]

What a great radio in the background and really fantastic 50s wallpaper , too.

Details

That wallpaper hurts my eyes.

I love the detail of the nurse photo on the table, that is totally HER in another few years!

Radio

"Big sister" is standing next to a General Electric console radio that is similar to this GE E-68-2 model; note the difference in the number of front-panel knobs: 3 vs. 5. Following General Electric's model numbering scheme prior to WW II, "E" models were built in 1936.

Abba!

I got excited when I saw the name of this since I am a big ABBA fan! Then I saw the dress ... And realized they would have TOTALLY worn it!
