Photos and Writing of Proud Father Sam
who had a great sense of humor

In addition to the wonderful and often fun photos Sam Finkelstein took, he often showed his humor in writing, especially in the captions under the photos he took of his family and then organized in albums he maintained.

As I, Sheila, went through albums, I came across the sequence on the next two pages. Romantic Sam comes through in this sequence below and brings loving smiles of remembrance to my face. Title and captions follow under the photos are Sam's. Given the last caption, I suspect I took the photos while Sam was at work and I visited former neighbors who had moved to California and had come back to visit other friends locally (in NY). Barbara was born around the same time as our older son Joe, 22 months old in these photos.
