1920 Asheville Parade on Patton Avenue

1920 Asheville Parade on Patton Avenue

A 1920 reunion of the 30th Infantry Division (The Hickory Division) of WWI AEF fame. The old guy in gray is my great-great-grandfather Noah Frady, possibly the oldest American Civil War vet alive in Asheville at the time.
Also present are his son-in-law (in doorway, wearing white suit at left) and his grandsons... the smallest one running alongside is my grandfather, Max Rhodes.

Asheville in 1920

My mother was born in Asheville in 1920. I almost feel like I can see my Grandfather standing in the crowd.

I find the arch interesting I wonder when they took it down.

Hometown

Very rarely do I see photos of places I am familiar with on here but I happen to be a resident of Asheville- how neat to see Patton Ave like this!
