It is fun to reminisce as we look through old B&W prints of our past. Sepia is a nice enhancement to views of our past, the bronze enhancement adding a warm monochrome to our memories.
So for the host of this fun meme, and Borough of Queens native Mary, I go back into the past - again. And Sepia Scenes is the place to reminisce of a place in time. The apartment at 203-11 42nd Avenue in Queens NYC.
On the left is sister Michele in the center, with sisters Claudia and Sharon to her right. I am guessing that the girls surrounding Michele is Debbie, her little sister Lynn and Patty.
On the right is Michele (second grade) in her school uniform for St. Kevin's School (195th Street I believe) and newborn sis Suzanne Marie. The oldest and the youngest in 1962.
A sepia warmth seems to permeate the warm memories of Bayside. We moved when I was in second grade to East Hartford Connecticut suburbia, yet the concrete canyons around the old apartment seem memorable today...
