it’ll stunt yer growth …

girl on father’s lap in fall 1959 – by Ron Laytner

Toronto. … said my little friend Harry as he puffed away. It was the 1940s and Harry was ahead of me in school in spite of his shorter stature.   This all came back to me when my fellow PHSC member George Dunbar sent along this photo snapped by the late Ron Laytner from here in the big smoke (and no, the child isn’t smoking – her dad is).

Laytner’s photo was featured in the MISCELLANY column  of LIFE magazine in its September 7,  1959 issue on page 106 .
