This is a snapshot from 1956. It is dated on the back June 3 1956.
It is from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Boy would I like to have lunch there! Three kinds of cakes, homemade buns in a enamel bowl and assorted salads and maybe potato chips in a Peach Lusterwear bowl. I see on the clock that it is 11:45 and almost time for lunch. I bet this was a Sunday. I am going to find a 1956 calendar and see if I am right. Yes.. indeed it was a Sunday. . Back in 1956 in the Midwest..family get togethers were always on Sunday. Everyone worked all week, shopped and fixed their hair on Saturday and went to church and someplace for lunch on Sunday afternoon..and if you had an anniversary or a birthday to celebrate..everyone came to your house.
I think it says Happy Birthday Mama on that cake.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
Yesterday was the Anniversary of Forgotten Old Photos. Three years and a 1,030 old photos. Sixty Full Circles and about 94 old photos returned to family! It has certainly been an adventure! I thank you all for reading and a special thanks to everyone that leaves comments..especially Iggy who does most of the research and can find almost anyone..but Olsons, Petersons and Johnsons just drive him nuts!
