Happy Father's Day!

Long Island City, Queens, 1950.  My father is the twin on the right.  He remembers the hats as being yellow.  One great/ hard thing about being a twin in the Barron family was that they had to dress exactly alike until they were something like 13.  When one child got dirty, they were both required to change. 


  1. I think it's cute to dress twins alike, but not until they're thirteen and I definitely draw the line at changing clothes on a clean child.

    1. It probably was a LOT of work as back then they discouraged breastfeeding and sterilising bottles and preparing formula the way they did in the old days would take about forever.
