The Here, There, and Everywhere Collection,-Dearborn
As can be seen on the full album page, this one is dated "Jan.- 1944." I've actually written about this before, but here it goes again. During World War 2, millions of young American men were in the service. There were women in the military, of course, but their numbers were far fewer. In other words, there were millions of American women, on the home front, with no male companionship. When I find pictures from the war years, especially mid 43 through late 45, I'm never surprised when there aren't any young men in the photos.
There are no pictures on the back of this page, but it's labeled "Dearborn-Sept-'43." I've known about Dearborn, Michigan for years, but I have to admit, I've always assumed it was Deerborn. I figured some early pioneer had founded the city where he had seen a doe and her fawn. Well actually, I never thought about it all, but I did think it was Deerborn. It turns out the city was named after Revolutionary War General Henry Dearborn. Who knew?
