Here’s a flashback of a flashback.
Tobe Berkovitz posted this photo on social media. It first appeared in the Westport News. The date is unknown.
It shows 4 Westport youngsters — already grown, when the paper ran the image — receiving vaccinations, in the early 1960s.
The image was taken for an ad agency owned by Westporter Bill Backalenick. His children Paul and Lynn, and 2 Berkovitzes — Toby and Amy — served as models.
Were they being immunized against polio? Measles? Mumps?
Who knows. But whatever was in the vaccine worked. All 4 became healthy adults.
