Geneva - Page 2.
December 23. 2015: It has been 91 years
today since the birth of my mother. I think it is fitting that I have a chance to
add more to her story on this day. On this day in 1946 they went to an airport.
I have no idea if they went for any rides.
Flo would pose for the camera any time, any place.
Some days Claude and Geneva would go to some of the national park areas near
Chattanooga. There are a number of Civil War monuments at these parks.
Geneva is on the right side of this photo with three of her friends. I
met the lady next to her a few years later. Her family name is Holcomb. Mom
had s "studio" picture of her in her photo collection.
Here is another photo taken with the ESSO sign in the background. This
time, the friends and my father are posing behind the car by the side of the highway near
the Tennessee state line. The car hiding behind them is the 1941 Pontiac.
Could it be the car belonged to my Father? He has a pocket watch attached to
that decorative chain through the belt loop of his pants. Pants in those days had a
"watch pocket" at the top of the right hand main pocket.
This early image from a Polaroid Land camera has been cleaned up with my photo
editing program. Based on the car in the background and the clothes, I estimate
this photo was taken about 1953-1955. There were two major national bus lines at
that time, Greyhound and Trailways.
