Those silly swim caps were still around when I was a kid....I hated how they felt, and when I was a bit older I hated how they made us look...LOL

I don't know if it's the photo or her arm - my grandmother (and my mother) didn't know who she was and, of course, there was nothing written on the back but "George and girlfriend" :(

AncientFaces I was just confused, as it could just be a tear or mark on the pic. I love the photo! He’s so cute, but died so young!

Looks like maybe some sort of bracelet or something pulled up high?

AncientFaces the poor thing looked cadaverish. Could be the photo itself had a tear?

Joanne Latham Jacobellis ....I did not want to offend..but..since you ask...look at her toes...my own mother was born with half a left arm..so am not trying to be rude..just curious.

Karin Tydeman I agree...she was cool

I wonder if it is a bit blurred because she moved. Her fingers and feet look a little odd on closer inspection. So maybe its the film back then.
He was a handsome young man.

Joanne Latham Jacobellis He did. Unfortunately, he died 3 years before I was born. My mom missed him all of her life. He could play any percussion instrument - including piano - by ear and sat in with many famous bands of the time.

I so love seeing pictures of grandparents when they were young, it reminds us they were once young too, a whole life ahead of them, dreams and plans they may have had.
