Car Crash

Car Crash

My Grandpa was driving when some T-bird ran a light. My brother and I were in the back seat and we slammed into the front seats ripping the skin off our knees. Cars didn't have seatbelts back then. My Grandpa almost kicked it but recovered. We were only going about 40 mph. View full size.

Sell Street Boxers

Sell Street Boxers

Circa mid-1930s in then rural Commerce Township, Michigan.

This is a photo of my uncle and father probably taken at the summer rental house on Commerce Lake that they stayed at for a couple summers before they moved here permanently from Detroit. Not too long before, the Depression had them living in a tent for the summer in northern Michigan. They eventually ended up buying land and building their own houses. To make it in life, you have to fight for what you get. View full size.
