Wordless Wednesday: The End of World War II

This photo of my husband was taken in or before September 1945, when he was about four years old.  From April 1944 through January 1946, he and his parents (and sister Ann, born during this time) were living in Washington, D.C., while his father, Francis Edward Gresham, was serving in the Navy as a negative engraver and cameraman with the Hydrographic Office there.

My husband remembers V-J Day, the end of World War II with Japan.  A family friend took him and other neighborhood kids to get ice cream - quite a treat.  Perhaps this photo was taken on that day.
