I’m posting photos from my collection of family photographs on Saturdays with a brief explanation of what I know about each picture.
Ah, the summer of 1955. We were rockin’ around the clock to Bill Haley and His Comets, laughs were gained from “I Love Lucy” on new televisions and the Ed Sullivan Show was becoming a Sunday night viewing staple. Yours truly just got to go along for the ride, below with my father (who is celebrating a birthday today) in front of my maternal grandparent’s home on Pickering Street in Toronto, Ontario. I don’t know who took the photograph as my father was the one usually behind the camera but given that the photo is a bit blurry, I’m guessing it was mother who was standing in as photographer.
