White Plains: Circa 1959

This is dad in 1959. He is sitting in that "ultramodern" contraption, the canvas sling chair.

Here is my brother Charlie at about seven or eight years old. You can see my dad's hi-fi setup back there setting on the record cabinet.

I guess Charlie was proud enough of this toy set to pose it and capture it on film.

This was one of my favorite places to be—right in front of the tv.

A couple years ago Charlie drew this plan of our house in White Plains. I think the wall between the living and dining is not quite accurate.

I guess Doug Rice took this picture. Charlie kept trying to get in the picture but I didn't want him to. He finally got into it by coming through the door at just the right moment.
