I love this little snapshot of a little boy calling on his play phone. When the photo was cropped some of the writing on the back was removed. However I am able to make out “….phoning to his grandma and grandpa! Say hello to him!” What with the way children love to talk and of course emulate whatever their parents are doing, having a play phone is a great way for them to develop language skills.
Also written on the back was: Identification: Rose & Fred Wilson, Belden Resort, Belden Calif.” The Belden Resort is still in existence in northern California on the Feather River, 28 miles east of Quincy. It is situated east of Chico, which is about 50 miles east of Sacramento, our state capitol. The river runs through mountain passes and it looks like great fishing.
This is a proud Sepia Saturday post, where the theme is generally kids at play, football or soccer, round glasses and winter coats over short pants. Click on over, you will be happy you did!
