Bowties, Drum Kits & Striped Pyjamas

Another look back at my grandparents' Hoyt Avenue apartment in Staten Island.  Growing up, I would always run across album prints of posed shots showing my Mom, Aunt Karen and Uncle Kevin in their striped holiday pyjamas, but the more casual shots of them actually playing with toys seemed to be on these slides.  I'm glad to have had a more candid look at the playful side of Christmas 1957 and I know my family is as well.
