Memory Lane

A series of 1956 make-believe action shots featuring my Dad [in striped shirt], his sister Lelia and cousin Skipper. The italicized comments are words my grandmother scribbled on the back of each photo.


He must go down. Same ole gang.

Boy, we really punctured him!

One down and one to go.

A fight to the finish.

We all got to go sometime.
