Walter Wilkison - England 1955

My Dad In England circa 1955

September 13th, 2009

I was born in London, England in 1955. My dad was serving in the military and was stationed at a base near London for several years in the mid-fifties. He was there on his own for a little while and then my Mom joined him at some point. We lived there until just after my first birthday, so I really have no memories of it. This is a photo I found of my dad standing next to a car somewhere near where we lived. It’s dated “Aug 10” on the back, but I’m not sure if this was the August before I was born or after. In addition to the date my mom also wrote, “Walt in one of his new outfits we had made.” I’m not sure if this is their car or not.

The photo I have is an original, printed on Velox photographic paper with a glossy surface. It’s a very small print, about 2 1/4 by 3 inches with a small white border typical of photos from that era.

London has always been a special place for me. I’ve visited many times over the years and my sister Denise spent a semester in college there.
