|Michael with his mother Ann, about 1954|
My husband Michael and his mother Ann.
Michael and Ann pose by the side of their house. He recognizes the tall rain barrel next to his bedroom window, the smaller pantry window (in the top left of the picture), and a basement window at ground level by his feet. He’s not sure why there’s a door leaning against the house, though.
Michael appears to be about 10-14 months old, so the photo was taken in late 1953 or early 1954.
Mother and son were photographed at their family farm, north of Pelly, Saskatchewan.
It looks like a nice sunny day, so Michael’s parents (with father Bill probably taking the picture) thought it was a good time for an outdoor photo of their only son.
Michael loves this picture, because it brings back fond memories of his childhood and how much he enjoyed the clean, wholesome life he, his younger sister and their parents had at their farm. I love this photo, too, because it’s a rare picture of Michael as an infant.
