Raymond Parker and Daddy (Sometimes) – 1961 to July 1966

1 December 1961

This is a long, extraordinary series of photos of a young American, Raymond Parker, from babyhood in 1961 to . . . well, we shall see. Many of the photos are dated but none indicate where they were taken. Some include a, mostly hidden, father, but generally Ray is on his own. There is a progression through his childhood and through changing fashions. There is one strip of a lone woman included with this group but no sign of a mother at any stage.

I do love a series of booth photos showing a person at different times in their life. This group is my largest collection of such photos.

Undated. Probably 1962

  1. Oh, my heart goes out to this lad. How good it would have been to know how he grew up.

  3. In my opinion, the very best pics of kids are taken when they are just busy being kids. No fuss, no muss allows anyone seeing those pictures to see their personality & character rather than how well they look when all decked out & dolled up. These photos are GREAT! Thanks K, well done my friend! 🙂 Hugz

  4. What a wonderful series! It really reminds me of the 1960s in America, when I was growing up too. Pure speculation but I imagine the boy’s parents were separated or divorced and these photos were taken on special visits he had with his dad.
