Regarding Stanley & Myrtle:

When this photo was taken she was already the mother of 5 (boys)the oldest being age 6 but turning 7 in July. I believe this photo was taken in early summer about May or June from the way the sky looks, etc. I would like to know who was holding the camera for this one - we were literally out in the middle of no where - the nearest neighbor a half mile to the South - Virgil & Lenore.

Those were days never to be forgotten - sometimes I would like to relive those days know what I know now. Sometimes it seems everything develops backwards.

Awesome pictures. I just love pictures from that time period.
Most of my childhood pictures look like that!

I love to see older photos whether I know them or not. It's fun to see the hairstyles, clothing, and even the furniture. Have a great weekend.
