Recess, 1960

Click to enlargeI ran across the above image on the Humboldt Reunion website today. It shows the playground of the St. Vincent school in 1960. My sister Betty is in the photograph, at the bottom of the ladder, with her friends right behind her - Lois Ward, JoEllyn Clow, and Virginia Seed.

That sure brought memories back for me. I was, of course, only a wee baby then, but just a mere few years later, I was playing on that same playground myself.

Now, does anyone have a photo of the fire escape? [I LOVED that thing...such an adventure to climb up it then slide down. But only in the summer, when teachers were not around to chase us away...!]
