Kools for Kids

Found by Amber Dawn in North Carolina

A while back, I found a bunch of slide carousels. I don’t know who they belonged to originally, but some of the people appear in multiple slides, so that’s one clue. The dates are stamped on the slides and range from 1970 to 1979. Most are overseas vacation photos, but it’s the family photos which I like best.

This is one of the earlier slides, dated 1970. It was most likely taken during a small family get-together, maybe a birthday or special event. For the sake of the little boy, let’s hope it’s a special occasion! Dad (or whoever) is DEFINITELY holding a lit cigarette to the kid’s mouth. You may not be able to tell, but in the larger version there’s even a cherry (burning) on the end. Also present at the party were at least two other small children, a mom(?), a grandma(?), and at least two other men. And now you know just about as much as I do.
