All My Grandparents on Their Wedding Days

June 14th, 2019 Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments »

This first picture is of my maternal grandparents, who I never met. They both died before I was born, alas. They were the blue collar side of the family. Walter worked for Con Edison his entire life, and died on the street on the way to work. My mother told me his co-workers joked, “Walter didn’t come to work today, he must be dead!” And he was! They were married in 1927.

Scroll down, please …

This second shot is my paternal grandparents. I didn’t have the original, so the quality isn’t great, but I love the top hat! They were married in 1926. My father’s side of the family was more affluent. His father was a judge who was appointed by Mayor La Guardia. They were neighbors of the Trumps, and my father’s sister used to babysit Donald. I remember my father telling me that no one in the neighborhood liked Donald.

I spotted this sign on the platform for the Q Train Times Square stop. I love a nice, positive message in the morning. Thank you PrideTrain people!

Jungle on the Roof

Look at that wonderful jungle up on the roof of this building. I’d love to live there except it looks like just a garage or something. There are no windows.

My Favorite Picture

This is one of my favorite shots I ever took, except it’s out of focus and I printed it myself and I was never good at color printing, the colors are all wrong (this was all manually done at the time). Still, I love it. I was driving along and came upon this dog obedience class. Good doggies.
