Favorite and Historical Photo of My Parents
One of my favorite photos is one of my mother and father, Frank & Dorothy La Marr. This photo is both personal and historic. It was taken during the WWII era and was the photo he sent to his relatives announcing he marriage.
My mother at the time was living in Arcadia, California.
My mother’s family had moved Kanasa in the early 1920’s, my father, as a young man, moved to California, also in the early 1920’s from Omaha, Nebraska. The met working at at fast food café in Arcadia California.
What do I consider histrorcal about this photo? At the time this photo was taken my mother’s parents lived in Arcadia, California across from the Santa Anita race track and if you will notice in the background are the interment buildings were the Japanese were housed.
