Early Color Photograph Along Lowell Avenue--1956

The Phelps brothers posed for this color photograph on August 13, 1956.  Although the color is beginning to fade, you can still see the vibrant hues in their clothing and the glorious nature along the property line.  The Phelps family dwelled at 5317 Lowell Avenue (see link below).  Behind the boys, you can see 5325 Lowell Avenue.  The brick pathway they are standing near still meanders to their childhood home. Both of these homes have been restored by 2012 so the brothers would have little difficulty recognizing their childhood haunts.
