Kathleen AlbaneseHere’s yet another picture that I can’t date. I have to assume it’s from the 50s, but that’s about the best I can guess. I wonder what she was thinking, staring off into space like that. Or was she looking at someone else in the room? What in the world is that thing on top of the TV? Where was it taken? Why was she wearing this pretty dress? Are those real pearls? Was having that television a big deal back then? How hideous were those curtains? Who took the picture?

I wish I could pick up the phone and ask her. She’d be so excited to hear my voice, and so happy to tell me the story.
