My mom's sister shared this photo with me. It is of my mom & dad taken about 1945.
I love it for several reasons.
1. It's the only photo I've ever seen of my dad in his Army uniform.
2. They're so young. As children, we don't see our parents as ever being young. But they were.
3. They're expressions. They look so somber. I wonder if it was the day that Dad was leaving for WWII. If so, that explains it.
I love old photos such as this. I think it's important that we (the younger generation) preserve these images to share with our children and future generations. It's an important part of our heritage.
Do you have photos of previous generations? Do you have ideas for preserving or displaying them that you'd like to share?
