Here’s my (Matt’s) uncle Jerry Chapman — in his youth, he lived next door to his future wife, my maternal aunt Judy DeVoe (Chapman) — so it’s no mystery how they met. They would later marry in August of 1960, but this photo has processing date of June 1958, so he would be around 19 years old. Was this his birthday? I can see that he’s at Don & Betty DeVoe’s house on Janice St, I recognize that lamp and phone-shelf.
This is the first color photo I’ve added to the site — it’s another good one to show the abilities of using photoshop for editing/improvements, so below is a before/after slider. The original had a border that I trimmed — I’m generally going to be removing all borders. This one needed some minor repair of scratches/damage, some red and yellow reduction, and some sharpening of blur.
- What was the occasion? His birthday?
- When did Jerry realize that Judy was the one?
