Treasure Chest Thursday - Buzzie home from Army in Japan
Treasure Chest Thursday
Buzzie home from Army in Japan
Another of these old black and white photos that get more precious as the years go by. This was my uncle (Mom's brother) Edward (Buzzie) KINNICK with his future wife, Colleen DAVIS, upon his return from Japan in early 1948. He served in the U.S. Army occupation forces after WWII. He is still wearing his uniform... sans jacket, of course. I recognize the belt! ;-)
In addition to the people, of course, the backgrounds of these photos become so much more valuable for dating and remembering our family history. This photo was outside our (Smith) family farm house. A couple of years later, that chimney was removed along with the small porch - and a large additional (New Porch - Family Room) was added - where many of my early color slides were taken: fireplace, bookcases, mahogany decor, large open room!
AND, look at that car!!! ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
