Back Page - Bumpers

Woman and car

Lots of pictures of our family and friends are posed just at the front or rear bumper of the family car. There was a time when the "bumper" was a distinctly separate part of a car. It's purpose was mostly to protect the fenders and grille of the auto from minor scrapes and dings. They were also important for pushing other cars.

Now they are integrated into the body design. It doesn't protect the body, it IS the body.

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.

  1. "I'm getting ready to fly" is wonderful! She reminds me of Fanny Brice. What a find.

  2. Thanks!
    She certainly does look like Fanny Brice, costume and all.
