Ah yes.   1945.  I was about 2 years old here, with Dad's army cap on.  

He must have been home briefly on a leave from his work on the radar installation near Halifax N.S.  Thank heavens he didn't go overseas.

This picture reminds of a Shirley Temple movie. She was about that age tap dancing for US soldiers..... Very Nice keep sake

Thanks Christine! I suspect this picture would be only the 3rd time I'd seen my Dad since I was born. Halifax was a long ways away from Vancouver BC.

Thank you! My Mom used to use rags to make ringlets of my very curly hair, trying to keep it under control. Too bad I never learned tapdancing - I used to love singing, though. :)

Oh, so cute! I recently posted a pic of me as a 2 year old, but my knees were chubbier than yours. At least we stayed upright for the photos. My hair was dead straight, so I had it kept short for the sake of tidiness until I started "really" objecting to the hairdresser :-)
