I talked to Melodie about this last evening, and we wondered if the picture pony people were only on the west coast, where we lived, or was this a nation wide thing,,,like the musical ice cream trucks . I would like to know if anyone had the same experience with these door to door salesmen. Write and let me know.

1950's The Traveling Salesmen And The Pony
It was the mid 1950's when the people would bring their pony, costume's, and camera to the suburb's, going door to door selling Polaroid's of children as cowgirls and cowboys. Ingenious, and only in America. My sister Melodie is the first photo, she remembers. I do not. As you can see I was afraid, and someone was kneeling behind the horse, Melodie said I did not want to be up there. Melodie has always been the "brave one". I am so glad to have these, so glad Mom saved everything, and made our lives fun. Except for having to eat my peas, or I'd face them for breakfast, and I never had peas for breakfast, and I "still" don't like them. I'm the "stubborn one".
