Flashback Friday

This is one of the only pictures my dad has with his father, who died when he was young. 
I love this picture for that reason. 
If I didn't know better, I would have thought that this was MY daddy-
 they looked so much alike. 
I love the guy standing to the side- I wish I knew who he was. 
You can tell this picture was taken in the 40's
 because the phone number on the wrecker has only 3 digits. 
Can you imagine? 


  1. Very nice picture! I remember when you could dial anybody in town w/ 4 digits. There was a lot of consternation when we had to start using 7. And I work w/ a guy named Holden originally from LA. Wonder if there's any connection?

    Have a great day, friend! Chris

  2. We had a party line when I was growing up, until I was out of high school.

    Most kids today have no idea what I am talking about when I mention party lines.

    Back in the day...:)

  3. What a great photo! I love your "flashback" days!

  4. I remember visiting my Granny and she had a party line where she lived. I thought it was so cool to be able to pick up the phone and hear all kinds of people talking. :o) Not that I did that, or anything.
