My family three years later

This reminds me of our family three years later, in late 1940, when my dad brought us from Purgitsville, WV to Gettysburg, PA where he found work in a shoe factory. Then the old car sat in the yard until the war was over and tires were no longer rationed.

I wonder how these folks

spent the Christmas of 1936, I assume my parents had a better time than these poor travellers, then again my Mother would never utter a word about the depression.
