    I really enjoyed this post. Childhood memories of loved ones no longer with us are so precious.

    My inclination is that the picture was taken later than the 30s. Most of the autos just look like later models to me and I can’t imagine that the residents of the town were all that up to date. If you ever find out, I’d really like to know.

      That is a good point. Locals were discussing it and thought the cars all looked to be in the 30’s. It would be interesting to find out. I will keep my ears open. Thanks for coming by!

    Enjoyed your reminiscing. I grew up in the country too. My grandma had a hand pump in her kitchen sink and she always had wonderful food. We had a party line. As a teen, it always aggravated me. We were “on the list” for a single line for a long time it seems to me.

      That’s great Julie! I know the older I get the more I look at other grandmas and just want to go up to them and hug them. They remind me so much of my parents and grandparents.

    What a lovely post. I grew up next door to my grandparents and was very close to them. I can certainly relate…walking in to the warm welcoming kitchen where Toll House cookies were always baked just for me 🙂

    I have been doing a series on the family tree and love looking at all of the old photos…some from back in the 1800’s!
