Photo Friday

Vintage photograph, boys 1942
Insanely expressive--such a fun image.
I mean, LOOK at that boo-boo face!
And the cute sailor suit!

This is just a 'found' photo, so its history is unknown.
Writing on the back says Billy and Bobby (Bobby was also known as either Spot, or Spat, or Spar...I can't decipher the handwriting).
It's dated 9-6-42

So many interesting characteristics in the background too--hairbows, brick, pipe smoking, and old car...

What a cute photo! The little girl in the background on the right reminds me of pics of my mom in the New York summertime by the beach.
Have a fantastic weekend!

Those ears look like they are pulling the smile on sailor boy. I'd like that outfit now.

I SO enjoyed this photo! 1942 is the year I was born. Those hairbows had gone out of style by the time I was a toddler thanks goodness. Or perhaps Mum couldn't get them to stay in my extremely thin fine hair! I have a cute picture of my hubby at about 2 yrs old in a sailor suit. What IS this Photo Friday? Something you invented? A Flickr group perhaps?
