Priscilla Normandy Greenwood's Family Album

1935 - 1940

Shirley Temple was popular in the thirties and people used to say I looked like her.
I think it was my curly hair. These pictures were taken when I lived at 199 Devoe Street in Brooklyn.
Sometimes Mom dressed me in costumes just for fun. I loved playing dress-up. I still do!

Priscilla and Dad 1939 NY World's Fair Postcard from 1939 New York World's Fair

The symbol of the 1939 New York World's Fair was the Trylon and Perisphere, a 700-foot spire and 200-foot sphere. They had a small replica set up for taking photos like the one above with my Dad, but the real one was huge and impressive, especially  to a four year-old.

 I remember being wide-eyed over two freebies the vendors gave out, tiny pins you could put on your shirt.  My favorite was the Mr. Peanut pin, but the tiny Heinz pickle pin ran a close second. I wish I still had mine.

There are wonderful websites devoted to this World's Fair
which was held in Flushing Meadow, New York, just east of the City.
I read somewhere online that  most of that area  is now the home of the
National Tennis Center.

Jean, Priscilla, and Buddy - 1939 NY World's Fair

Here I am with my sister and brother. This is a very special memory
because our whole family went to the World's Fair together.
