Another Black & White series, 1950’s: Pt. 4
Let’s spend a day at the Indian Village. For purposes of the narrative here, I’ll just say that photo number one shows our gang of little varmints and their beer-guzzlin'-cigarette-smokin’-dads pulling up to the dock of the Indian Village in a canoe. I’m sure some smarty-pants expert will correct me and say that they are actually leaving, but this is my story and I ain’t swervin' today! Shot #2 shows one of the Indians cuttin’ a rug in the Ceremonial Dance Circle. In all seriousness, it is a shame that today’s children don’t get a chance to experience this.
The only thing missing from the photo is the tear streaming down the Indian's cheek along with a cartoon bubble admonishing this little boy not to litter. Again...veering back into serious territory, I really do love this shot. This little tot is experiencing something that (I would imagine) he will remember for a long time.
Last one today shows all the little troublemakers together in one shot. The end of a perfect day, filled with lots of stories to tell their buddies back home who couldn’t make it. Oh, but wait...it’s not the end of the day. More to come tomorrow!
