Dr. George P. Studzinski


This photograph of my father, Dr. George P. Studzinski, and I is significant to me for several reasons. It was taken in Scotland, United Kingdom, the country in which I was born, and the country to which my father immigrated as a 15 year old to escape the Communist regime in Poland after World War II. It was taken in June of 1971 by my Mom’s eldest brother, Uncle Jim, who was a newspaper photographer. It was the first–and only–time I went back to the UK after my family moved to Philadelphia in 1962. Stripes on stripes apparently were the cutting edge of fashion in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania in 1971.
