vintage photo time: the 30's

thank you lily! xox
Lily and her sister Heather are good friends of the family.  When their grandmother passed on a while back, Lily happened to see that  there were a number of fine old pet snaps left among her effects, and very kindly thought of me.  She sent me not one, not two, but 15 terrific scans! This is #2, from 1933, and I believe this is their grandfather.  I will share more of these very special vintage photos this week.

1933. Nice to think that in such a difficult time (Depression, war looming), a young man could be happy with his pet.
