My father, Lee Clough, in 1941, proud of his Piper airplane (and his leather jacket) at Scholes Field in Galveston, Texas. As engineer for the family radio station, KLUF, he was in a critical occupation but flew patrols over the Gulf of Mexico with the Civil Air Patrol. He had his own airplane at age 14. View full size.
My father, Lee Clough, in 1939, pulling to start his Monosport aircraft at Scholes Field, Galveston's airport. It's fun when your father owns a flying school. Photo likely by my grandfather, George Roy Clough. View full size.
My grandparents' grocery store at 8th and Winstanley Avenue in East St. Louis IL. That intersection and neighborhood is no longer on the map having been swept away by the Interstate highway. My grandfather and grandmother are pictured behind the counter while two unidentified patrons happily pose for the camera. Maybe they the buying that milk on the counter? Writing on the backside of the 6" X 8" print alludes to the photo having been taken in 1914. Everyone appears to be dressed warmly. It may have been November 30 based on the calendar hanging in the background. Also seen here in 1920. View full size.
My grandparents' grocery store at 8th and Winstanley Avenue in East St. Louis, Illinois. That intersection and neighborhood is no longer on the map having been swept away by the Interstate highway. An unnamed employee is pictured behind the counter. The store has been rearranged since the 1914 picture seen here and now has a bunch of "fresh" bananas hanging from a hook. There are no notations on the back side of the 5" X 7" print. Short sleeves and the brown spotted bananas would suggest warm weather. View full size.
This photo mounted on heavy card stock was found in a box of old family photos; it might be a souvenir. Probably taken in warm weather as the ladies have short sleeves and spring-like hats. Note this is Bus #4. I'm posting it to complement other similar photos of the Green Car Sight-Seeing Services photos already on Shorpy. View full size.
