Baby Book - 1952

The first three pictures are the first color photos in the scrapbook taken with our own camera and color film.  They are badly faded.  I am not doing any manipulating of the scanning results. I will leave it to you to tweak any photos to try to improve them as you like since a lot of personal preference enters into such editing.

The next photos are from a train trip that Mom, Marion, and I took to Illinois to visit Mom's friends.  This was one of the most memorable trips of my life.
