Friday’s Photo: On the Rooftop

William and Helen Quinn - graduation from St. Catherine's Academy - 1944

I like this photograph of my father-in-law, William Quinn and his twin sister, Helen. It’s easily determined that it is some type of graduation picture and that it was taken on a roof of a building – has to be in NYC.  Looking at additional family pictures, there are more taken in the same location. Why the roof?  This was easily explained by my husband’s aunt last month – the family lived on the fifth floor of the building and it was easier to go to the roof than down five flights of stairs. 

William Quinn - 1940s

William Quinn and Doris Staubach - about 1952
