I don’t remember Dad as a reader, but maybe he just didn’t have time once we had come along and he was working long hours for General Motors.
Now that the photo’s scanned, I can see he’s keeping abreast with Life magazine.
Mom joined Dad when he was stationed in Fort Myers, Florida.
Here he is on the stairs to the cottage they rented.
She’s wearing a cape dress and likely a small lace prayer covering, befitting the Plain dress of their conservative German Baptist Brethren discipline. He’s a little less strict, but moving toward the older ways.
Like the photo posted last week, this one was also taken in July 1943 but in Ohio.
Wilma (Binkley) Creager holds daughter Ann, who held a place of eminence as the oldest of the kids emerging on Grandma’s side of the family.
I’m curious about who took this shot of Mom in July 1943, likely during a visit by Grandpa and Grandma to Fort Myers, Florida, where dad was stationed.
Unlike most family snapshots, this one was taken from above and was relatively studiously posed.
