Three Kids in a Tub
My assumption is it was a hot summer day and they let the kids play in a tub of water to cool off. Not sure if those are bathing suits--or just their underwear. They seem to be enjoying themselves but my mother does look a little apprehensive. Not sure what those interesting wooden barrels are for in the background. Is it outside their home? Possibly in an alley near their home (lots of alleys in Lawrenceville). I can pinpoint the location to Selma Street. I know from old Pittsburgh directories that my mother's family lived on Selma Street with my great grandmother. Her cousin Dolly's family lived with them also. Whatever the location it gives me a window to a moment in time on a summer day in my mother's childhood.
