Dad and Mom on the town in 1947

Dad and Mom on the town 1947

In Washington DC. The photo is marked 1947 on the back. They look pretty happy. This reinforces my impression that we were a reasonably happy family until some point in the early-to-mid 1950s. I presume the photo was taken by street photographer. Anyway, they rarely went out at night, but when they did we had a teenage babysitter from one of the local farms; I can't recall her name just now but she had red hair.
