Good morning,

Looking back on the 1940s. In the video I make an appearance playing with my toy steamshovel. I really liked that thing and it 67 years till I saw the real thing in operation (see last photo)

The video was filmed in 1948 by my Uncle Ed. After the there was a severe housing shortage. We lived in govenment housing in Stamford, CT. My Aunt and Uncle lived in the Quonset hut seen in the film.

67 years later I finally saw one of these things in operation. What a treat.
