Who is watching the children?

July 1963?
That means I was just under 31/2 years-old.
(I am the unsupervised little girl at the TOP of the jungle gym)
My sister was not even two years old.
( she is the one at the bottom of the pic, about to scale the jungle gym, unsupervised)

Hello child protective services?
Did you exist in the 1960's?
Because I promise you there isn't a parent alive in 2010 that would allow two cute, topless little girls to go higher than a foot without Mommy or Daddy hovering.

And about us being topless...
I know for a fact that little girls DID wear shirts in the 1960's!
Where were ours?
At least I had a groovy pair of sunglasses on.

With some of the things I did as a little kid, it's a wonder I'm still alive.

Nice shades.

What?? No helmets? No shredded rubber tires below to stop you from splatting when you fall? I bet you didn't have on sunscreen either!!

Is it too late to place a call to the authorities?

Great picture. Yup. We had lots of leeway back in the "old" days.

Obviously the camera man is watching you! Shirts were so 1970!
