Up On The Rooftop


It was early in the 1950's when television came to Baba & Dzedo Briscar's house in Lemont. Delores would have no part of the little rabbit ears antenna.  Here she is high on the roof installing an outdoor antenna.  I remember the 9-inch Dumont TV with the beautiful wood cabinet, and of course, 2 or 3 channels.  That's all that was available then

Ann Marie says: My mother sure wasn't afraid of heights. She would check out her roof at her house.  She painted the outside of her house with  no problem climbing on a ladder. You wouldn't catch wimpy me on a ladder!!
