Caption: “Our family found several pictures that my deceased father took while serving in the Korean War.

“My father, Ralph Anderson, served in the Army’s 2nd Division, 38th Regiment, Company K, from 1951 to 1953. These pictures were among the items he brought back from Korea. I believe the pictures are of USO entertainers, possibly screen actresses from Hollywood. We are curious who they are. Perhaps some of your readers may recognize them. The Bulletin Board may be a good way to find out, as well as an item of human interest to your readers.”

Caption: “No cowboy hats here, but a fedora and an Easter bonnet. It was Easter Sunday 1953. That’s me and my cousin Carol (9) with spanking-new outfits. She sure is cute — and lives in Philadelphia, where the picture was taken. I hope you enjoy.”

Caption: “This picture is of the White kids in Madison, Florida: Mae, Lloyd, Pearl and Coral — 1928 year?

“The truck was used by Dad to haul ice from an ice plant to places around Madison.

“I remember one winter we had to let the water run in the kitchen sink. In the morning we had a sink full of ice — up to the faucet.

“Memories, memories.

“Family is gone, and I’m OTD.”

Caption: “I was hoping you could run these pictures of the Doll Cake my mom made for my First Communion in 1959. My mom is now 86. She has made me numerous cakes through the years, including other Doll Cakes — one for my high school graduation. My mom has made cakes for others in the family through the years — too many to count.”

“Thanks for the memories.”
