Lex In A Papoose

Since I just got back from visiting my dad, this week’s #TBT is one of the first photos of the two of us. We were headed into the Saint John Museum and I was in the papoose Dad designed and made for me. It strapped on his back and boy-o-boy did we get a lot of strange looks in Saint John in the 1960s. Maybe more because he was one of 3 men in town with a beard and I think at least one of the others was a Rabbi. Hard to believe that this wasn’t considered “clean cut” back then. I mean Dad’s even wearing a cravat!
