From the photo archives of our dear Uncle Clinton come these rare
and wondrous glimpses into the late fifties and early sixties in
which the seven Fishel children were bred, fed and diapered.
Hidden from public view for decades, it was Dad's 80th birthday on March 7, 1997 that brought these images to light once again.
The originals are 35mm slides that our cousin Bette (Bubbles) Cowles converted into JPEG format. Thanks Bette! Uncle Clinton came across them while helping Bette on another project and gave them to Dad on his birthday. Unfortunately we never got to see them at his birthday party, so they are presented here for the enjoyment, or torment, of family, friends and complete strangers.
