3 family photos from March 1960

So many family snapshots that still need sorting. So little time...

Howard Horsey "Ted" Adams (1892-1985) in the master bedroom of the house on Oak Crest Lane in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. To his left is the small bathroom that later was remodeled and became the "pink and black" bathroom. Directly behind him is one of the room's two closets. To his right, the alcove contains a dresser that remained entrenched there until late 2014 or early 2015, when it went to auction.

Greta Miriam Chandler Adams (1894-1988) in the same master bedroom at Oak Crest Lane. She's in the other side of the room, near the window that faces out into the backyard. The room layout eventually "flipped" and, during most of my lifetime, the bed was up against the wall to Greta's right and a bureau and mirror were located against the wall where the bed is in this photo. I don't believe we still have any of the pieces of furniture shown here.

Mary Margaret Ingham Otto (1948-2017) relaxing with unknown (to me) cat in, I believe, my grandmother's house in Rose Valley. It's not the Oak Crest Lane house, because that house didn't have those kind of big cast-iron radiators. The multi-colored blanket to the right is still in the family, at my sister's house.

  1. I recognize that room but am glad you explained the angle and the moving of the bed because I was really confused.
