Rulon Powell Peterson & Naomi Skeen Peterson, August 1956
I love this little snapshot. It was taken just two years before Naomi died. It captures their personalities – he was a very robust take-charge kind of guy and she was reserved and somewhat shy. I wonder what the occasion for this photo was – new car? Visit from older children? Rulon & Naomi are my great-grandparents.

Her dress is very sweet. The pleats under the skirt pockets are a nice detail.
Thank you. I think so to. From what I’m told, everything about her was sweet.
Awww, that’s probably what attracted them to each other–their opposite personalities.
You are probably right!
Nice photo. That car does look pretty shiny and he does look very happy – men and their cars!
Thank you – it could definitely be a new car smile!
