Springtime in the early 1970’s

Cooke Family in springtime in NYWell, some images should be burned just because of the era that spawned them. And yet, I put this forth as a reminder that ‘fashion’ is fleeting – far faster than family fortunately. Pictured here from left to right are:  (standing) David, Jack, Patricia; (kneeling) Sierra and Alan. From the fancy dress I am guessing this was an Easter Sunday visitation with John & Isyl. John and Isyl were Bleecker’s parents (and thus Jack, David, Alan & Sierra’s grandparents) and Pat’s in-laws. The tree is a large magnolia tree in full bloom which was in the front yard of their house in Plandome Manor / Mannhasset on Long Island, NY. The year was probably 1973 or 1974.

In your own family’s archives, you know there are pictures like this. Don’t hide them, don’t get rid of them – they are a part of our shared history. Someday, some descendent will wonder how we lived during these times. Here is proof that some Cooke’s definitely lived in this decade.
