I wanted to continue my post from yesterday when I posted photographs of Mrs. Porter and her family in 1951 and 1952.
The photos that her husband and sister took of her capture a beautiful woman in her mid-prime, approaching middle-age who is full of life and joy as she spends time with her family. Yes, it was 70 years ago when these photos were taken, yet they look as if we could step into the photograph, and talk to Mrs. Porter about her life and her family.
An American Wife and Mother
Whatever else Mrs. Porter may have been in her time on Earth, she was in fact an American wife and Mother: a quintessential “1950s Mom” of her time.
The Sands of Time Fall Quickly
It’s hard to come to grips with the fact that these photos are 70 years old and that most of the adults and children in them have already passed away from this Earth or are very elderly in a nursing home or care center.
