(Not-So-) Wordless Wednesday: Fred, Nana, Bob, Mare, Rho, April or May, 1952

This photo was taken on the front entry of 2093 W. Lunt Avenue in Chicago in either late April or early May, 1952, when my dad was visiting home after his commissioning as a Second Lieutenant in the Air Force on April 11, after completion of navigator training at Ellington Air Force Base in Houston, en route to reporting on May 14 for B-26 bombardment training at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia.

Standing are my dad, Frederick Henry Pape (1929-2017), my grandmother Elizabeth Florence Massmann Pape (1902-2000), my uncle Paul Robert Pape Jr. (1926-2008), who was in the Navy at the time, and in front are my cousins Marianne Streff Gustafson and Rosemary Jean Streff Grandusky (1949-2016). 

This image is from a recently-found Kodachrome slide.
