Back Page - The Front Porch Swing

Child in a swing

The front porch swing. This was the "air conditioner" of the time.

Part of the rewards of rescuing old photographs is the finding a snapshot that is a reminder of one’s own past.. This could be the swing on the front porch of the house where I grew up and then left. The last house I lived in with my parents. A long time ago.

The proximity of the house next door, the "front" bedroom window, the lap siding, the unpainted wood swing; it could be from my own past.

Yeah, this is my younger brother and me. We are on the steps at the front porch in Kansas. Many years ago. The porch swing is in the background. The trellis in this picture wasn't always there.

THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery
how a photograph of any
of these precious children
could end up lost
or abandoned.
Here are a few.
You will probably say
"Ooh..." at least once.
