1953 I have 2 earliest, pictures/rememberances in my mind. Of course in nyc, where I was born. The first is me looking out from my carriage; black with that big handle....there was only 1 kind in the 50s! But the image is of me looking out...sitting there, being pushed during a walk in the park in NYC. sunny day, with the big white, satin bow in my hair, sticking out from under my cap. and in my minds-eye I can see the blur of things at eye level, right above the edge of the black carriage. 2-the NYTs front page/when Queen Elizabeth was crowned queen of England, laying there in our apartment on the coffee table, in our railcar apartment.
