|Jeep stuck in the snow at Boot Road and Chestnut Street Downingtown PA - 1953|
Back in the Good Old Days, when I was just a young Whipper Snapper, I had a Kodak Brownie camera.
We lived at that time on Boot Road just outside of Downingtown, Pennsylvania. One winter day in 1953 I took this picture out of my bedroom window of a Jeep that was stuck in the snow.
My two younger brothers and I shared that bedroom. We even slept in the same bad (which I hated and is probably the reason I sleep alone now, even though I have been partnered up the past forty-seven years with Bill). I spent a lot of time in that bedroom on the second floor of that house looking out that window.

Last year the brick house was torn down to make room for a parking lot. Such a waste.
|Our old home, a pile of rubble - I hope they didn't put the bricks in a landfill|
