We had a great back yard when we were growing up on Cherry Street in Marshfield. Dad put up a rabbit hutch one summer and we took care of bunnies. I don't remember if they had names. I just remember that their cage was back by the garage and that we enjoyed their company as kids.
Check out the ephemera (little things to notice) in this photo from my Dad's slides. The bunnies are drinking out of a cereal bowl. The water glass that filled their bowl is on top of the hutch. The white food container looks like one of those match holders that held a big box of wooden matches. The wood pile appears to have been replenished.
The canvas on top of the hutch must be rain protection. The photo was taken in the summer since the hedge behind has leaves.
For today, since it is the Saturday before Easter in 2013, we'll assume that these 1950's bunnies are Easter bunnies.
