This was recorded earlier this fall. The video is about a newspaper article in Lillian Lytle’s scrapbook. The subject of the article is a piece of sheet music called “The Pardeeville Advance” and features our Wing family aunts, uncles and cousins. There’s also a lyric video!

Allergy to cow’s milk

1939 Chicago IL Joanne with toys from Barbara Pahlow on Vimeo.

This is a professional photo of my mother Joanne Pease, probably taken somewhere in Chicago. She looks to be around a year old, so this is 1939. I was told she had an allergy to cow’s milk when she was a baby. They were able to substitute goat’s milk. The allergy caused her to scratch herself. This picture shows toys in her hands which were given to her to keep her from scratching.


1960s Lansing IL, Cuddly Dudley

1960s Lansing IL Cuddly Dudley from Barbara Pahlow on Vimeo.

This stuffed dog was a big deal. In Chicago, in the 1960s, there was a popular morning show for children called Ray Rayner and Friends, and the dog’s name was Cuddly Dudley. Cuddly Dudley was often featured on the Ray Rayner Show. One of my grownups bought this stuffed Cuddly Dudley for us.

The cardboard box behind it was the dog’s house. Our next door neighbor Maxine came over to visit Cuddly Dudley.She is the pretty girl in the dress on the left. My sister Kris is sitting in front of the dog. Her hair is messy, but at least she has her shoes on. I have my glasses on. This picture was taken in the mid 1960s, in my grandma Helen’s living room, in Lansing Illinois.
