1953 Dance Party

This is the final copy. Scroll down to see the original print and scan from the negative. Best viewed large size. It's not cropped narrow - it's extra long!

 

Mom is in the green dress on the right. The dress reminds me of that "Bare Naked Ladies" song "If I had a Million Dollars." You remember that line, "If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a green dress, but not a REAL green dress, that's CRUEL..." That old green gown hung in a closet up in my grandmother's attic from 1953 until we emptied her home when she died, about 40 years later... Was she a packrat? You betcha!
