Hi everyone, especially Michael,
I just found this picture of me wearing a "babushka"
which I tried to explain to Michael. A babushka is a Russian name for Grandmother, and also a scarf folded into a triangle and worn over the head. Dad said in his days it was called a "bandana". This picture was taken on 9 February 1948, my Senior year. The large book is my Latin book that I took home every day. We translated Cicero this year, and I didn't use a "pony". The coat is a hand down from my sister Catherine, I think I wore it every winter for about 3 years. The boots were a must in the winter, worn with our shoes inside. We lived on 18 Franklin Street, and I was standing in the field where we used to play base ball in the summer. The field was adjacent to our house.
Just a bit of history.
