Happy 83rd Birthday, Mom!

mom dad 1952


They were Brooklyn kids, can you tell? Sweet and tough all at once.

(& Yes, we all still miss the big galoot in the photo, & we miss him a lot.)

They were in their early 20s when this one was taken, & they’re sitting on the stoop of a family home on Jerome Street, somewhere near Pitkin Avenue.

  1. A birthday wish to your mom. I know where Jerome Street is. A Brooklyn kid here.
