Aunt B’s Pictures

I was working in Aunt B’s basement yesterday, and she followed me down the stairs and began rummaging through some boxes, looking at old pictures.  The more that I looked, the more that I was amazed.

This first picture is of my Grandfather Knode and Aunt B when she was but one-month-old.  3843 Calvert Street in Washington, D.C.

Beverly was working for the U.S. embassy in Berlin, Germany in the early 60’s. She didn’t physically take this picture, but was there with a coworker. The hand-written inscription on the back reads “Presenting the Pres. with flowers at the Wall”

Aunt B, before the days of selfies…Debutant

While the Grandparents were away at work, a gentleman stopped by the house with a horse as a prop to take pictures.  For a cost of which my Grandmother found out about and paid for after returning home for the day!

Pony for Hire

I don’t really know who these people are (other than Aunt B, third from the left), I just thought it was a cool picture. A USO club I do believe, Aunt B lived at government/military bases around the world during her younger days.  Berlin, Bangkok, Tehran among others.  Can’t you just imagine the evening’s entertainment being Dean Martin or Bob Hope or Sheckey Greene.

A Story that I wrote about Aunt B many moons ago.

Last picture for tonight.  Mount Vernon Seminary graduation-1956

Back when people correctly used the word elegance.
