This is Bob. 1960s Vintage Kodachrome Slides

2.10ND016xc This is Bob

Introducing: Bob. Bob was kind of a melancholy looking kid.
Bob was Janice's steady in high school and college, and they went to every dance and party you can think of- Bob was like part of the family. Bob eventually pinned Janice. I have no idea whether Janice got to go to college or not, but in some of the pictures, you can clearly see his fraternity pin on her breast.


Okay, we're in the home-stretch of Janice's adolescence.

This group of slides were taken between about 1957 and 1963. Janice turned 17 in 1959.

Janice was Vicky's older sister, and of course, with most first-born children, they get most of the pub.

Janice's artsy mom photographer that took those awesome pictures of Vicky, and the other cool pictures in the Long Beach Set, documented Janice's adolescence and subsequent marriage.

Edit: My brain was fried when I uploaded these. I am nearly certain that janice was in college during this time. I have to go back and verify it, but I recall, (after editing these these first time months ago), that the "Hobo Party" slides taken in Janice's back yard were annotated with something like "Janice's Initiation party." So, it's quite possible that she pledge a sorority.

Also: you can clearly see THE PIN.

Thank goodness for that-sorority, that is. When I read "initiation", I got scared and thought maybe, well, you know...

oh dear. at least she was able to go to school. my mom pledged in the 50s, like her mother did in the 30s. My grandmother nearly had a stroke when my cousin ruined everything and didn't pledge a sorority, let alone follow the legacy... It's just what you did then, I guess.
