WOW, Sue has a load of wonderful pictures from years ago. Here are two she sent this weekend:
Her mom, Joan Suess, is in the front row of this childrens Whistle Band from 1941. It was obviously sponsored by St Michaels Church / school...don't they look proud? Those drums make me wonder about volumn: they were necessary to keep time, but the bass looks like it could overpower the music pretty easily...lol "Play a little softer, Billy, ok?"
Now THIS photo delights me! Sue sent it this morning, with the subject line:
"Things you could do barefoot..."
LOL! Second kid from the left is Agnes Hesch (Aggie Suess) at about 10 years old...so this was about 1916.
EIGHT kids and the driver--can you imagine the laughter and squealing? Hmm...wonder what was being built there, in the background?
SUE, THESE ARE TERRIFIC--THANKS!
