Gus - Photo #36 - Photos sent by Lina 24 January 2023

The photo catches the essence of Gus's back yard. It really was like a jungle! With a nude woman in the middle! Pretty scandalous for the clean-cut conservative manicured-lawn suburb Arlington had become in the postwar. Despite the profuse fauna, however, the grass was always neatly mowed, I did it myself a few times with the old push mower. On the back an inscription from Uncle Pete:


Pete wandered all over world for ten years after the war, but he counted this as his true home until he married.
