Photograph Showcase: A boy and his toys

Scanned Image 101200045

This photo was taken in January of 1948.  The boy is my grand uncle Frank who seems very content playing with his erector sets.  I love the details of the room – the pretty rug, the piano, the two chairs, and the seemingly home made wooden chest beside my Uncle Frank.

  1. This could have been a picture of me….well, not 1948! 1958 maybe!! Thinking back to some of the toys we took for granted as children are now “collector’s items”! I still have a double barreled shotgun from my youth. It’s only about 18″ long and it only shoots corks. Now that I think of it, I only shot them at my older sister until i got caught!

    1. I’m chuckling right now. It sounds like you were a perfectly normal boy. I have three boys myself and shooting corks at each other would be their preference over shooting corks at a target.
