Memory Monday slides redux, Week 34
This week’s slides are a somewhat hodge-podge collection from late 1971 and early 1972, all stamped with the same processing date of June 1972. I don’t know the dates they were actually shot, but I’ve mostly tried to arrange them in order according to the small numbers printed on the slide frames.
I have no idea what my gift was in this photo — maybe a nightgown? However, noticing the library book in the foreground made me curious. The book is The Threatening Fog, by Leon Ware, published in 1962, and was apparently a Junior Literary Guild Selection. I decided to add it to my current bookshelf, and I’m now the proud owner of a copy that once belonged to the Lee Library Association in Massachusetts!
Here, I’ve just pulled a stuffed Winnie the Pooh bear out of the cardboard box. You might also notice our Three Wise Men hanging on the wall; they were made from a few different kinds of dried pasta covered in gold spray paint.
I’m tacking on one extra image — this one is date stamped 1975 and shows the harbor in Fort Bragg, California.
Next week, I’ll be starting on a big bunch of slides from May 1976, when my parents traveled to central Washington State. I can hardly wait to get started!
