Sepia Scenes - 7 December
Sepia Scenes, thoughtfully hosted by Mary, is back. Today is December 7, the day that 'lived in infamy' back in 1941. It seems that WWII mobilized the entire USA in one form or another, and by its end, Americans were happy to see its end in August 1945.
Note the huge flag that is draped across the porch of the house.
The picture has a relative (the girl) and I guess other neighborhood kids in Steubenville Ohio involved in the shot, taken by my grandfather. It was a day to celebrate. I believe that the headline is splashed across the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the children (and dog) are really celebrating. What began that December 7 finally ended...
