It must have been a special day for the grandfather to get out his clarinet. Don’t you wonder what role it played in his youth? Maybe he was in a marching band, an orchestra, or even a jazz group. Or maybe he played it everyday day as a hobby. The little girl looks as if she doesn’t quite know what to make of it.
But I’m really interested in the grandmother’s apron. Did she wear it all day long to protect her dress, or had she just come in from the kitchen to join in the fun? As I recall, aprons were a generational item in the 1950s. My grandmother wore one often; my mother wore one rarely. And I never have worn an apron at all.
