Mother and Dad, High Street, Columbus, OH



This is the earliest picture I have of my parents together. He is wearing spats. Yes, spats! On a warm summer day in the Midwest, a man is wearing a jacket and tie and a woman is wearing a light summer dress. Neither is wearing a T-shirt which says FCUK, or for that matter, anything else. And yet they are smiling!

Why not pull the photo out of the frame and scan it?

Yes, it's a different world, clothes-wise. In my area, in summer, the woman would be wearing bicycle shorts and halter top, and the man would be wearing hiking shorts and a stained wifebeater.

I'm afraid the whole thing will fall apart. But I might do it, anyway.
