Granny Johnston's 70th Birthday Party

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

This image was captured in November of 1969. The occasion was Granny Johnston's 70th birthday, and a grand time it was! Thanks go to cousin Eileen for the dating of this photo.

When my Dad and his brother and sister got together one thing was guaranteed - lots of laughter. If Granny Johnston were added, the laughter was non-stop.

This image was salvaged from a Polaroid photograph that had deteriorated badly. It is cropped, enlarged, restored and retouched. The photograph was taken in 1969 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, soon after we had gotten back from living for a couple of years in Warsak, Pakistan.

Now that the date is updated to 1969, it wasn't past my bedtime - I recall being there eating too many potatoe chips with cousins Ray and Ralph Johnston.

Clifford,
That was a great picture of my mom, two uncles and Granny J. It was well past my bedtime when taken but sometimes their laughter carried and still reflects good memories.
