Trikes and Walls

I have no idea when this photo was taken, but it makes me think of post war America with it's baby and building booms.  My English born mother (The marriage didn't work out and she was a very bitter woman.) hated the United States.  She was quite critical of a country that she thought didn't take things seriously.  My father lived through the great depression, had been a homeless teen, and while as a cryptographer was held out of combat, had also spent six years in the army.  He thought, after all people had been through, they deserved to have a good life.  Suburban single family homes, new cars, and too many kids, most Americans agreed with my father.
