Photo for Childrens
April 30, 2013 | 02:20 PM

The picture: I found one of my brother and me getting ready to "ride double" to the community swimming pool about 2 miles away. I held the bathing suits wrapped in towels and held on to him at the same time! To get to the pool we had two major hills and no usable sidewalks through our town but the smell of chlorine beckoned us. Getting there was part of the adventure. We had no fear. The photo was taken around 1947 when my brother was 11 and I was 10. Mother gave each of us 25 cents and told us to watch for traffic and be home by 5:00. Fast forward to today: our parents would have been arrested for child cruelty and abandonment.
I don't know how to scan but I thought I would get Office Depot to do it for me tomorrow. What is your deadline?
(NOTE: Ray has asked anyone who would like to email him a photo from their youth and include a few sentences about it - about a time when things were more simple - a time when stuff made more sense.

Email to the photo and a few sentences
