Loved this photo. Mom and son. Looks like son might be headed off to war. If you have kids, and my war guess is accurate, that smile on mom’s face was probably the single most difficult thing she’d ever been forced to do in her life. And the car? I have no clue what it is, except beautiful. If you know, tell me via comment. Would love to learn.
UPDATE: Two folks have kindly stepped up to inform me that the car is a 1947 Packard Sedan. Appreciate it, but now I wonder if the scenario I described for this photo was correct (1947, war over). Maybe I’ll just go back to bed and start over.
