You were/are every inch a cutie, Stephen! Lately, we've been discovering lots of old photos -- especially of my mother, that we'd never seen before. Quite a wonderful discovery for us!

I think most of us guys looked like dorks when we were young. Many of us never outgrew it. Sometimes it's better to remember than see old stomping grounds again. I moved many times as a kid, but I've been back to two of the places we lived, and I hardly recognize them.

I think that is so cute and I love what you wrote. My attachment to my childhood neighborhood is legendary, ha ha. But when I return, I can't get in touch with the place I remember. Every childhood memory is larger than life. I'm thankful for that.

How absolutely enchanting that you got to catch up with childhood friends. You are a lucky fella Chatterox

What a lovely memory. Those two children are absolutely sweet. I just want to hug and kiss them. What a wonderful and innocent time. Gives you a bit of perspective, I hope.

That looks like a fun visit, especially with finding the old photos.

Well, i don't think you look like a goober. And i don't blame you for hiding from cameras, i do, too.

Aww, you were a little cutie- how neat that your friends have brought back to you a photo of your childhood! ( I hate cameras, also..more so now then when growing up.)

Hi, you cute thing, you-!! Religion changes, too--the synagogue in my old neighborhood is now a Holy Rollers church & my husband used to play in the cornfields that are now the Los Angeles Mormon Temple.

The lack of pictures has cheated us all. You were quite a handsome young lad. And I love those James Dean rolled cuff trousers. : )

My goodness, you two look like adorable siblings. You did have those pants pulled pretty high though:) It is neat to meet up with childhood friends after so many years. It is amazing how comfortable we feel with each other.

This would be a good reminder of good old days and what went on in the neighborhood. first day of school photos were a big deal.

It is striking how much smaller people and places are when we look at them through adult eyes. These photos are as precious as the memories. You're adorable, and Linda has a very mature look for a young girl.

You both were adorable!!!

That's precious! Maybe you were showing off your socks. Do I detect a hint of argyle?

What a treasure, to come into possession of these old photos! You both looked very cute. My parents were poor farmers and never had a camera, but I had an uncle from the city (hot stuff, you know) and he was a decent photographers, even using color film in the early 60's. When my cousin (his daughter) came to visit me here in the States a number of years ago, I ended up with a nice little stack of "throwback" pictures.

How great to get a childhood picture at this stage of the game ... and you're selling yourself short - you and the little lady are quite the cute kids.

The pictures brought a smile to my face. Adorable and so "period." Too bad you look at the photos and still see yourself as quite a little goober. I see an adorable little boy (and there's no way you went to school in a T-shirt in the '50s).

I've driven by the house I was born into (we moved when I was 7ish I think) on occasion but it had been many years since I had done that. I happened to be in the area recently and decided to drive by one more time. the house is no longer there, the entire neighborhood scoured away and replaced with McMansions. not only that, they have renamed all the streets so I couldn't even find the old block.

Methinks you looked like you might be wanting to be up to no good in those pictures.

So poignant, great photos too.

You look quite happy. I guess somebody forgot to tell you you were supposed to be less that satisfied with where you lived. Good! Keep smiling. :)
