Trotter, P.I., c. 1962

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.

Happy hunting,
