When Grandpa Died
Submitter: Aside from the fact that the book cover is wearing out and the pages smell from 40+ years of age, the 70’s clothing made a book with a serious topic somewhat laughable because it looks so dated. Dad in particular is rocking some rad tight jeans, Beatles boots, and an epic ‘stache. Plus, note the photo where Dad comforts Mom as she cries about Grandpa. The book says it looks like Dad is about to cry too, but it rather looks like he’s taken comfort from the open beer bottle sitting on the floor next to him. Not the imagery you’d probably see in a realistic photo book published for kids today.
Holly: This absolutely screams 1979. That girl is now in her 40’s or even young 50’s and her parents are pushing 80. I’m curious about the text in the book, since the submitted pages are only pictures. Is it comforting or just weird?
