The Safari - Behind The Awkwardness

“This photo is circa 1959.  My mother had bolts of flannel fabric left when she dissolved a small toy business, so she made pjs for everyone!!!  Even my uncle had a pair, but he refused to be photographed.  This photo was included in our Christmas cards that year.”
