My Mom with Rick in 1944

Eleanor Suiter and Son
Today would have been my mother's 94th birthday. My father took this photo in front of their apartment building in 1944. The album page says "201 Clinton Avenue" and pictures of my dad show him in his Navy uniform, so this would be when he was stationed at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

By the time I came along the war was over and they lived in Virginia.

  2. It's a lovely pic. So nice that you have it to share.

  3. Wonderful picture of your Mum Linda, I love the style of that period.
