Tomorrow my Mom would have been 80 years old. Here she is, 1940, with her brothers walking down Fulton Street (before it became a mall) in Fresno. About a year after this picture was taken, during her 12th birthday party, Pearl Harbor was bombed.
Here's a little excerpt about that period of time from one of her scrap books:
The 2 pictures below were taken on Valentine's day 1938.
Mom is the little blonde on the front row to the left.
This one taken on Temperence Avenue in Fresno in 1938 or 1939, with her brother Don.
Go here to see a video of her.
