Here are some photos of two birthday parties at the Colony courtesy of my mother, Flossy Wilson Delgado and my cousin, Catherine Austin Thomas. I believe my mom received these pictures from someone else but I need to clarify that. Do you have memories of birthday parties at the Colony?

The next two photos were taken during the early 1940’s.

From Catherine Austin Thomas, two photos from her son Bill’s birthday in Avalos as they visited over a long holiday. Bill celebrated his 3rd birthday on August 1, 1953 and a pinata was in order!
