June 1958 Photo of Randy, Scott, Betty and Fred Seaver -- Post 669 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

  I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite colorized photographs:

This photograph was taken in June 1958 on the occasion of my graduation from Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School.  It was taken in the patio (our ping pong center, whiffle ball field,  and basketball court) near 2114 Fern Street in San Diego.  We lived at 2119 30th Street, the upper floor of the house in the background.

Pictured here are, from the left:

*  Betty Virginia (Carringer) Seaver (1919-2002), my mother, looking spiffy in her white suit and hat.

*  Randall Jeffrey Seaver (1943-????), moi, almost five feet tall, in a suit and bow tie.

*  Scott Seaver (1955-????), my youngest brother, in a suit.

*  Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983), my father, in a suit and tie, watching an airplane go over.

I also see the family cat, Rootie Toot Toot (undetermined age), rubbing against my mother's right leg.

This photograph was originally black-and-white and I colorized it, enhanced it and restored it using the MyHeritage InColor photo tools.
