My fav candid shot of Grandma & Grandpa Hughes, taken at Silver Lake, Wisconsin, 1942. Not quite sure what they're doing (is he feeding her something or lighting her cigarette maybe?). They're not around anymore to say & daddy doesn't remember either (he was only 5 when this was taken). Any guesses out there? Thanx!
