My Mom in 1944

My mom graduated from NYC’s Straubenmuller Textile High School in 1944 and then went to work for the Navy at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.  This is her senior picture (lower left hand corner). If you know me, you’ll see that I’ve inherited her hair.

She was also one of the Senior Celebrities as “Chatterbox”, which is totally unsurprising. Of course, her name is spelled wrong, but that’s not unusual for those of us with Polish last names.

I’m feeling a lot of emotion right now. Very few of that school’s yearbooks have been scanned but luckily for me they did manage to get 1944.
