My printer died last weekend and I got this new Canon multifunction unit (scanner, printer, copier etc.) so I have been scanning some old photos. Here is my mother sitting with the carriage driver. My grandparents are sitting in the cab. I never met my grandfather. He died at 55 of a heart attack, a few years before I was born. Everyone always speaks of him in reverential tones, as if he were some sainted man. And he very well may have been. I wish I knew.
I am not sure where the picture was taken but it is most likely in Pennsylvania. My mother grew up in Bethlehem.
