Dressed for the Beach

Dressed for the Beach

In 1970, my father, Lasalle Hankins, won this boat in a drawing. At that time, my parents had eight children to feed and decided to sell the boat to secure additional funds for our care.

Prior to its sale, my father had to have a family photograph taken with the boat. I am sitting on my mother’s lap wearing a bathing suit. Years later, I inquired of my mother as to my “inappropriate” dress attire. She responded, “You often dressed yourself in a bathing suit hoping to go to the beach!”
