|Me and Bill on our Philadelphia roof deck - 1972|
Found some more old photos folks that you haven't seen before. I'm sure regular followers of this blog are tired of me reposting the same old photos of me (and Bill) of long ago. Well folks, as I said in a previous blog posting, I found a whole new treasure trove of old photos which I will be subjecting you all too.
These two photos were taken on the rooftop of our 16 ft by 50 ft (including a small backyard) townhouse at 2409 Naudain Street, in center city Philadelphia. They were taken in September 1972 (42 years ago!) with a self-timer camera. Of course the subjects in the photos are yours truly (in some God awful red striped shorts) and my Bill. At this juncture we were together a grand total of seven years.
Bill built that roof deck for me so I could work on my tan. I didn't get out of the city that often and when I did it was only to visit my parents in Downingtown, a suburb thirty-seven miles west of Philadelphia. And of course I didn't and couldn't "work on my tan" when visiting Mom and Pop in Downingtown.
I look at these pictures and think "Wow, a lot of water sure has flowed over the dam since these photos were taken."
Check out that Philadelphia skyline folks. That's a million dollar view. And yep, we had it…..made.
