(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 195: The Seaver Boys in 1958

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).    

Here is a small photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:   



This photograph was taken in about 1958, in the living room at the home of Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer at 825 Harbor View Place in San Diego.  I remember the framed shell display in the background.

This is a picture of me and my brothers - from the left, Stan, Scott and Randy.  Somehow, the photographer (probably my grandfather) caught all of us laughing or smiling at the same time.  It looks like Stan and I have to hold Scott down (holding his hands and on his waist, note the little balloon emblem on Scott's sweater).  Three year olds are like that, aren't they?  Scott is a bit distracted by someone trying to make him laugh.  Check out the hairdos too - I had a longish flattop with lots of Butchwax, as did Stan, but he had curly hair and mine was dead straight.  This was the age of Elvis Presley on the Ed Sullivan Show and on the radio, and Kookie on 77 Sunset Strip, but we weren't allowed to have ducktail haircuts.

Love it! Do you remeber what kind of 'Butch Wax" you preferred/used??
