Here are some movie clips from 1949-50. First, a family reunion at 4316 Pacific Way, 1950. Featured are Isaac, all five sons, plus Aunt Irene and her sister Vera (? – help me out on this, cousins), and some horseplay by Darlene, Lois, Kenny and Myrna. I inadvertently left the sound on this one – mostly just noise, sorry.
Some of you remember how my Mom loved to make costumes and dress up the kids. Parades were a cherished opportunity. Here are a couple of examples from 1949-1950 featuring me, Kenny, Myrna, Marcia, and some other kids, all outfitted by Reatha.

Love those movie clips George!! They’re priceless. Your mother had a wonderful knack for ideas and costuming and I get the biggest kick out of seeing my two little sisters doing their Hawaiian hula stuff.
That is Vera in the picture. As you know, she and my mother were twins. I never have totally determined if they were identical (they looked very much alike) or fraternal (there were some differences, i.e. height) but based on my mother having had polio as an infant there would have been some physical changes so that could account for the difference.
Love these movies and all the other additions to the site, thanks for all your time and effort!
