My mom was born in 1949 and adopted by my grandparents ~2 weeks thereafter. This photo dates from the later part of the 1950s as best as I can tell, based on dated pictures of my Mom. Her dad was a WWII vet, aviator, and lineman for both electric & phone companies before opening a body shop; he also helped build the first 4 houses on their block after the land owner parceled out his land into plots to build on, and did all of their electrical, plumbing and heating; both my grandparents lived in the same house that he built until they passed away in 1986 and 2003.

Grandpa was born in 1915 and Grandma in 1916.
