This one is fun on so many levels!
This is my father in what he calls a P. I. hat and shoulder holster with toy gun—probably a Christmas present around 1962. I think it’s the actual outfit that keeps throwing me—in particular the pattern of his sweater? And I’m pretty sure that’s my oldest uncle grinning in the background.
I believe this photo is taken near their home in the Brewster-Douglas Housing Project in Detroit, MI.
