Notice...

She's wearing nail polish. I love the details like that.

My grandpa

Faro Caudill was my Grandpa and we have very few pictures of him when he was younger because he was 15 years older than my grandmother. Any ideas on where to find more pictures? redkenwolf@yahoo.com

1940

Yes, 1940. The Pie Town pictures were scanned from Kodachrome slides. 35mm Kodachrome film went on the market sometime around 1937.

October 1940?

Can this date really be correct? The picture seems too good for that time.

What a name!

Faro... you gotta love a guy named after a card game.
