On the way home we stopped for coffee and I couldn't keep myself from reaching in the back seat for the bag and looking through it. I was amazed at what I found. Yes, there were pictures of me but there were also pictures of my dad as a baby that I had never seen before, even one of him as a newborn! There were also graduation pictures and Christmas pictures and pictures of dad with his Lionel trains. A treasure trove and the best Christmas gift I could imagine!
It will take me some time to get these photos all scanned and organized but for a start, here is the funeral card of dad's maternal grandmother, Mathilda A Anderson, as well as a photo from the bag, taken in the summer of 1937.
