Life sure was tough in post-war Germany

My mother turned 80 last Monday.

Lilo, 1947

This is what my mother says about the picture.
I remember
when my sister took that picture of me--I thought I
was really cute perching on the railing of the second
story balcony--I wore an old blouse and had made the
shorts from an old white cotton sweater--life was
TOUGH in those postwar years--but we made the best of
things--and survived--after all, I was 20 and in love
with a soldier from far away Texas
