Camping Out Under a Giant Oak--1948

The Vogt children (5733 Oak Avenue) and the Hecker children (5729 Oak Avenue) grew up together in the 1940s and 50s.  In this candid photo, taken in 1948, the neighboring boys have set up a makeshift tent in the front yard at 5729 Oak Avenue.  Towering above them, a giant oak tree with its wide limbs likely made for an interesting silhouette against a moonlit sky.  Chuck Vogt was an active member of the Cub Scouts so he was likely the architect of their nightly abode.  The Vogt home at 5733 Oak Avenue is in the background of the photo.
