Wordless Wednesday: The Taylor Siblings

Well, almost wordless . . . Meet the Taylor Siblings!

The Taylor Siblings are Elgin, Jon, and Me! Yeah, I was being cantankerous as a little sister could be that day. All I know is that I didn’t want to sit down and be still for the camera and I didn’t mind letting the men in my life know it too- LOL! Dad took this photo of us during the month of May in 1961, as we sat on the front lawn of our first home at 4314 Stonewall Street in the Greater 5th Ward area of Houston, TX.

As I look closer at this photo, I begin to realize that though a lot has changed in my old neighborhood since 1961, some things did stay the same. One thing that did stay the same is the white house across the street from us in the photo above. That house, built in 1927, belonged to Mr. Phillip Flakes then and now! I don’t know if he still lives in the house today, or uses it as rental property; what I do know is that the house is still there — painted a bright shade of pink (see photo below)!

What has changed is where my brothers and I are sitting. We’re siting exactly where the  Fifth Ward Church of Christ is located today (see below)!

  1. Oh how cute!

    The big brothers had to hold the squirmy baby sister so Dad could get a photo…

    I bet you gave them a run for their money as you all grew up…


    • Hi Dee! Thanks so much for checking out my WW photo. I sure did give those brothers of mine a run for their money. I was the baby and the only girl in the family. So my dad and brothers spoiled me rotten and therefore, I was a complete cut-up around them 24/7 – LOL!
