Uncle Pauly

Uncle Pauly - Family Portrait

“My mother (top middle) grew up in Southside Chicago to parents who immigrated from Poland. There are tons of these family photos of my mother and her siblings posing with my grandpa (the one in the ushanka). My uncle Pauly, who was about 13 in this photo is always posing with either a beer or a cigarette. I don’t know, but looking at these photos makes me wonder if everybody was drunk through the 1970’s. I, however, have photos of my grandpa and I posing with kielbasa and ushankas, so I suppose the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”

Family Protest - Behind The Awkwardness

“My brother & I were none too pleased with the attire or arrangement of the photo. I was a HUGE tomboy who told her she could dress me up but could NOT make me smile. My brother was mad she put the younger/smaller brother in the higher position.”
