Another favorite photo from our family collection showing my Dad John on the left, and Albert Bahlieda(his future best man) taken at Chippewa Park near Fort William(now Thunder Bay) Ontario. Taken in 1939, they were just goofing around and had seen this "Slow" sign to pose with. Note the cool little '30 Model "A" Ford pickup in the background(wish I had it now). They both entered the services together, and also spent some time in England in the mid 1940's, after my Dad was married, and I was born. Later on Albert ran a service station on the corner or May and Cummings for many years, across from the present day Superior Bowling alley. There are no buildings at the service station site at the present time. Click on pic to enlarge.
