Special Picture # 42 – Lad in Caracas – 1940

 I’m going to continue with another week of pictures. The plan is for me to go home on the 26th so I’ll have a week or two of letters before I go in for the second surgery. I’ll be posting Special Pictures unless I can really get ahead with the letters. I hope you are continuing to enjoy them.

When Lad first arrived in Caracas, he worked for his Uncle Ted Human as an Assistant as well as doing maintenance on company vehicles. This is the proper attire for young, working Americans in tropical countries.

Playing Dress-up

In his early childhood memories, Ced tells of a time when his Mother, her sisters and Rusty dressed up in old clothes they found in the attic. This picture might have been taken at that time, although I can’t begin to tell you who is who in this picture. It does look like they had a grand old time, though.

Marian in a Doctor's Bag - March, 1916

I think this is one of the cutest baby pictures I’ve ever seen and the fact that it is my Mother makes it even more precious.

She was 4 1/2 months old when this was taken.

The writing on the back doesn’t specify where it was taken or who’s bag it was.
