Throwback Thursday

First Communion Day was on 31. March 1963. I was 7 years old. It was cold and rainy. Not the best day for pictures.

Ma wasn't going to let a photo op go by. So here I am all dressed up in my First Communion dress. Date on the photo is May so I suspect this was around Mother's Day before heading to East Boston to visit Grandma and some other relatives. There's another picture of me in the same outfit in my Auntie Emma's (Dad's sister) parlor.

The dress was a hand-me-down from my Cousin D. Because I wore D's hand-me-downs, my Auntie Doti (Ma's sister) called me The Rag Picker.


  1. What a cute pick. I love the way you signed your name on the picture. Looks like its part of the steps.

  2. Cute pic! (Not so sure about your Aunt's comment....)
