For Sunday: several more scans from my father’s photo album. Today’s pictures all date from 1938 during the summer he lived & worked in Bourne, MA (he was a cook at ther Bourne Howard Johnson’s. In fact, my father stayed loyal to the Howard Johnson’s franchise for years: as far back as I can remember, our family car trips invariably included a stop at the orange roof—for instance, whenever we drove down to Boston, we always ate at the Fitchburg, MA Howard Johnson’s.
In case you’ve missed previous installments of photos from my father’s photo album, you can find links to them on the side frame. The lead-off pic this time around was captioned, “Me, I’m a bust”—in fact, my father was quite athletic & was an excellent skater both on roller skates & ice skates.
Hope you enjoy—his captions, as usual, are in italics:
