Happy Birthday Pop and Kathy…

Happy Birthday to my oldest sister Kathy and an early Happy Birthday to my Pop! Kathy’s birthday is today and Pop’s birthday is the 25th. He’ll be 85 on Sunday.


These photos were taken in 1947 or 1948. My Mother is pregnant with my sister Vera in this photo and Vera was born at the end of February in 1948. My parents had just immigrated to the USA from Iran. That is my oldest sister Kathy in both these photos. Kathy was born in Iran in May of 1946.

I love this photo of Kathy on the swing in the park with all the people sitting on the benches in the background. The men and some of the women with hats on. This photo is also from the late 40’s.


Here’s a photo of Kathy and my Pop taken last night at a family celebration.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. Oh, Ellen, I love these old photos of yours too! Look at those shoes on your sister in the photo of her on the swing. I just don’t see those baby shoes on little ones anymore.

  2. Ellen,

    I love those pictures…. so priceless. I love the picture of the family of trio — your parents achieved a lot in their lifetime in raising a family in a new country. My hats off to them!


  3. Wonderful photos both old and current. Your dad looks great. you have a lot of May birthdays in this family.

  4. I love those pictures, Ellen! Just amazing! A Very Happy Birthday to your sister Kathy and to your Pop, too! Thanks for sharing.

    On my current post I show up old photos of my grandmother and she also was born on May 25.

  5. Ellen, how very wonderful to have photos from that time. Don’t you love all the ambient details that were probably not so important at the time of the picture taking?

  6. It’s awesome that you have those pictures! You all have had a lot of BD celebrations lately – too fun, huh!
    HBD Kathy – luv you
