This is a photo taken in the old farmhouse where I grew up. It was taken late in 1958 or very early 1959. My Mom took the photo.
That is me with my hand on my waist. My cousin Evelyn is holding her oldest daughter Christine who was born in October of 1958. My baby brother looks on.
In this photo we get a peek into the pantry that was at the west end of the kitchen. I can see dishes on the shelves and what appears to be a curtain on the window. ( I do not remember a window in the pantry.)
On the wall is the little bluebird with a hat that held potholders, a “Last Supper” plate..and on the right side of the photo a basket of something. The white enamelware coffee pot is on the stove.
Evelyn is my oldest cousin on my Dad’s side of the family. She will be 74 in a few months. This photo was taken when Evelyn was 20 years old. No doubt she was over to visit one Sunday afternoon to show off her beautiful little girl.
People don’t visit on Sunday afternoons like we used to back in the 1950’s and 1960’s:)
