I don't actually participate in the weekly Sepia Saturday theme, because these two shots are my only old photos. And even then the sepia was added by me with Photoshop. So this is probably the only Sepia Saturday post you'll ever see from me.
This is my family circa 1958. That's me on the right in my argyle sweater-vest, doing my best Calvin (see Calvin and Hobbes) imitation. The shot was taken by my Grandmom Ethel in their old rowhouse in Baltimore. Below is a shot of me at one year old, taken in Grandmom's back yard.
And just to keep with the childhood theme, here's "Puffin' Billy" by Edward George White, in its original recording by the Melodi Light Orchestra. For those of you across the Pond, this was the theme to the BBC Light Programme's "Children's Favourites" from 1952 - 1966. But for those of us here in the US, the tune is best known as the opening theme of the iconic children's morning program "Captain Kangaroo", which ran from 1955 to 1984. Enjoy!
