This is my mom, age 2, in 1942. Her family lived in a tiny, poor little town in Eastern Washington called Outlook. I treasure any pictures of her taken before the age of 10 because the year that she was 10 their house burned to the ground, (badly burning my mom) and they lost everything. Any pictures from before that time are few and came from other relatives who happened to have some. I remember one time having a chat with my mom about her childhood and being flabbergasted to learn that until they rebuilt their house due to the fire, they did not have an indoor toilet and used an outhouse.
I love her little wrinkled up tights!
