|Maurice and Jacqueline, about 1953|
My parents, Maurice Belair and Jacqueline Desgroseilliers. Dad was about 26 years old and Mom about 20.
Mom and Dad met in the early 1950s and were going steady by 1953. They’re standing next to Dad’s Pontiac, which I think is a 1950 Silver Streak.
Mom is wearing a lightweight sleeveless cotton dress, so the photo was probably taken in the summer of 1953 or 1954.
My parents were photographed in Dunnville, a small town in southwestern Ontario near Lake Erie.
Mom and Dad enjoyed travelling and being outdoors. Once Dad was able to afford cars, he and Mom liked to go out on day trips and outings.
I love this photo, because it shows my parents when they were young, happy and carefree. I see their love for each other and that makes me happy!
