I remember it being Easter weekend. It wasn't the usual Easter weekend since auntie Beatrice and uncle Sal were down South from New York for the season. My uncle Sal owns a salt company, which makes him the
wealthiest man we know. Why, he came down here in, a new '37 Fiat 508 Balilla Spyder, the nicest auto in these parts. No one round here can buy a fancy looker like that. He even brought with him a camera, just
like the one Sally's parents have in town. My uncle liked to show off his money by boasting that he had a Graflex which he said was a "one of a kind." When we came back home from Easter service we ate an enormous
meal. Momma you always make the best giblets n' gravy I'd tell her. Baked chicken and mashed potatoes n' gravy was my favorite.
was a holiday,
my friend Huck would come over after he ate with his family.
Huck liked to eat a lot and momma said he had an appetite the size of the
lady in Mr. Peterson's Grocery. And she was a
Huck wanted to
see his picture
taken, and since auntie thought he was a handsome man too, she didn't
mind at all. Huck's lucky though, since he didn't get his cheek
I sat down in the chair next to Huck,
QUESTIONS FROM THE ARCHIVIST:
So It would seem that we are locating this picture in 1936 or 37 at easter somewhere in the south where spring arrives earlier than where Uncle Sal and Aunt Beatrice live at?
No, no they live in New York, down south from up North.
So billy, Is that you on the right then?
If your mom (what's her name?)
is not in this
Beatrice is in the middle(?)
Stella is on the left Billy's mom, auntie Beatrice is in the middle
What is Uncle Sal short for?
Billy called him Sal since he was a baby. It's was easier to say than Alfred
("Uncle Alfred, we're so sorry but we haven't done a bloody thing all day"... The Beatles)
Is Sal your dad's or mom's brother?
What's Your dad's name?
What else was on the table? Apple pie? String beans?
corn, apple pie, string beans, cauliflower, ect
Do you have your mom's recipe book?
is that the 508 Fiat built between the years 1934-37 with a 995cc,4 cylinder engine?
When we go into years, I get lost
Is huck short for
or is that a nickname since he look kind of
Exactly, Huck Finn type character
and the Graflex
must have been a 4x5 "Pre-anniversary"
