Hence the degeneration. http://www.domingomartinez-author.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=153024521 153024521 Gramma, Dad, and Mom, in a high wind. Don't recognize the house, or the people in back. http://www.domingomartinez-author.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=153024200 153024200 The Siren of the Cotton Fields. Gramma always could strike a pose. http://www.domingomartinez-author.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=153024526 153024526 Mom, moving in. Not sure where. http://www.domingomartinez-author.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=153024202 153024202 Mom is introduced to the barrio.

She worked as a hostess on a train, the "Berlin Express" in Los Angeles, after WWII. The gentleman to her left displeased her, obviously, and was removed in an early attempt at photoshopping. http://www.domingomartinez-author.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=153024522 153024522 My maternal Grandmother: Vixen You can see why all the fuss. http://www.domingomartinez-author.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=153024523 153024523 Her beau This photo still has steam coming off it. http://www.domingomartinez-author.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=153024524 153024524 Those are either French cigarettes or a rosary: either way, hot stuff.
