In my last post I wrote about my grandmother's old dishpan and showed a picture I believe was taken in the mid-1950s. Marion commented, "Do you know, I had a big old dishpan just like that. My first husband and I had a cabin on the ocean and when we were there, I would bathe my young children in it."
That comment made me remember seeing an old picture of a baby sitting outside in some kind of tub, so this morning I hunted up the picture and looked at it again.
Yep, it's the same dishpan. And that cute, chubby baby in it? That's my mother, who was born in 1923.
Things were made to last back then.
