Notes: That Chuck and I to the far left. I was always side-on to keep the surf from knocking me down. We stayed at Redwood Cottage for the second and last time this summer, with Carol and Andy. A fantastice vacation. We must have been in a New York saturation frenzy, preparing to move away to Texas. I don't think that I was aware that the move was forthcoming at this point. (Van)

Keywords: House
Annotation:
Low Resolution Picture   High Resolution Picture
Notes: These kitchen photos are not annotated. I originally placed them in 1950 assuming that they illustrate the new house. However, a detail in KC2S10A (the water glass) places them in the late 50's, so I assume they're farewell photos of the kitchen. Add to that the decorations carried over to Houston, so they must have been rather new at the time. (Van)

Notes: Among other things, I remember the water glass by the sink. The set was a present; I beleive for Christmas. I remember seeing my parents open it. That means this series has to be well after 1950, perhaps as late as 1959 and among the farewell pictures to Lincoln Avenue. (Van)
