Since they recently got together for a sibling reunion, this one stood out as a good selection for this week.
It’s a young, vibrant, dressed-up, Hoosier family, just welcoming twin boys Scott and Walter, which gives us a close approximation for dating. From left to right for the children we have Chris (8 years), Tom (5 years), baby Scott, John (6 years) standing in back, baby Walter, and Meg (2 years; Erin’s mother). The proud parents seated in this living room scene are Joe (36 years) and Marty (30 years). The family would go on to have two more girls in Missie (’62) and Cat (’64) when they would alas be completed and bring the gender balance back to even.
I haven’t yet figured out the location of the family home at this point in their lives, so some help there would be useful.
The original photo was in good condition and needed only minimal touch-up/cropping/light adjustments.
- Address/location of the family home at the time?
- Any specific memories or stories from this (young) era?
