[August 1940] Ted and Charlotte had photographs made for their wedding announcement - seven months before Ronni was born. That is an insignificant fact by today’s social standards, but was shameful in some circles in the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s.

Sad how they`re looking away from each other.

I am so glad you sent me this URL. I especially love the captions that supply an emotional `string quartet` accompaniment. The curly-haired boy your day once (unhappily) was; the shocked baby Ronni reacting to news of Pearl Harbor - your captions are truly inspired. And, I must tell you, the observation that your parents were sadly looking away from each other in their engagement photo really struck a chord.
I have a friend with a similar shot of his parents, and he feels the same. I will bookmark your site and check back. Thanks for the wonderful email - the image of your ex-boyfriend and ex-husband gabbing through the blackout while you slept is priceless. The fact that they got on well (under YOUR roof) says something about your enduring taste in men, does it not?

This looks like two negs were printed on the same piece of paper - it`s great. And the hand coloring is beautiful.

Lovely looking parents. Isn`t it funny how times have changed and yet we are still in the Dark Ages.
