Marilyn Makes a Trunk – 1956

  1. What a lovely picture and memory to have Kristin. A true Sepia Saturday gem.

  2. Another post that brings back memories. My son would giggle and giggle when I made an elephant trunk and noise.

    What a gorgeous photo. Thanks for sharing.

  3. It’s so amazing that most of us have elelphant photos in our collections. Yours is a real gem.

  4. I can remember doing the “elephant has a great big trunk” with our kids but don’t have any photos as I recall, certainly none of this vintage. Lovely pic.

    1. I would have written more about our annual trip to the zoo but I’m saving it for Z is for Zoo. Thank you for the nomination. I’m on my way to see it.
