I love this photo and the memories of a Sunday in May, 1953 that it evokes. Thats a six-year-old me on the left and my five-year-old sister and my brother who would have been four on the left. The gentleman holding our hands was not only our neighbor, but our surrogate grandfather who doled out hugs and candy and many, many stories of growing up long, long ago. You can just make out the swing set and sandbox in the background, along with trees that were beginning to fill out with leaves. Directly behind us is an elm tree that spread over all of our yards and provided so much shade in the summer. Unfortunately, it (and its smaller sibling next to our house) succumbed to Dutch Elm disease some years later.
