All Set For a New Career [1966]

New Career

The stunning Mrs. BelRedRoad tries on her Dad’s cap at home on Staten Island in the Fall of 1966. Jack was an Navy officer in the Public Health Service at the time, stationed in New York City. This photo was kept in his Mother’s photo album until she died, at which point her pictures were dispersed throughout at the family.

My wife had not see this photo for decades until it arrived in an envelope.

Going Through the Slides on Staten Island [1966]

Going Through the Slides - ca. 1966

Family friends are seen here going through photographic slides in 1966, on a card table my in-laws’ living room on Staten Island NY.  I love her pearls, her smile, and the look on his face.  Classic black & white Sixties.

We still own/use that Samsonite folding table, 46 years later.  I probably have the slides they are looking through.  The photo was taken with this Yashica 44 camera, probably by my father-in-law. Some Wall Of Retro visitors will recognize this to be the same home as this post!
