The Weekly Photo Challenge is Signs.
I came across a unique piece of family memorabilia.
When I asked my mother about it I was astounded to learn what it was.
There, in an envelope was a little piece of cloth tape with writing on it.
About one-inch square (two and a half centimeters).
There was a lot of information written on its tiny surface!
My mother explained at the time when she was born, the nursery staff would write pertinent information on a little piece of cloth tape, then they’d stick the tape on the babies’ backs in order to identify them!
Apparently all the babies had these little signs on them to show who they were, and to whom they belonged!
There were no hospital bracelets, just the little pieces of tape!
Here is my mother’s information:
Wt. 6# 6oz.
Born, 1:02 p. m.
A one-of-a kind miniature sign with special significance for my family!
