Uncle Dom, one of my mom’s three younger siblings and me, Easter 1946
Riding bikes with my younger brother Alfred in the park
Me at Brookville Lake State Park – 1949
Outside my Brooklyn home with my neighbor’s son, also named Alfred.
My friend Alfred and I after our First Communion in my parent’s bedroom.
And a portion of the party afterwards – May 1953 I’m up top with the bow. Mom is on the right with the big smile and my brothers Nicholas and Al front and center.
My first grade class photo (1949). I am standing directly with my teacher (Mrs. Fiore!) just in front of her right arm. Teacher’s pet!
Christmas – I’m guessing 1953 – my fat period which went on for about a year until I suddenly slimmed down and got like a rail. And it’s when everyone found out I couldn’t see shit and I got glasses. Mom, Al with his tongue out and Nicholas.
A photo which can’t be restored. The five of us – dad, mom, me, Al and Nicholas in 1952. I STILL had no glasses!
