Here are some more of my father’s photos for your enjoyment today. These were taken in the winter of 1938-1939 when he worked as a cook at a Howard Johnson’s in Dedham, Massachusetts. For those who’ve been following along: yes, it is hard to keep track of his job history during these years!
On other fronts: the last few days have been extraordinarily busy, & this will continue for the next couple of days at least. I’m pretty confident there will be posts over the weekend as usual, but I apologize for falling behind on blog visits & also for falling behind on responses to comments. I’m hoping next week will proceed at a more measured pace.
On To Work
Dedham, Mass (Winter 1938-39)
Competetition [It’s odd how much this “rival” restaurant looks like a Howard Johnson’s, but you can see the sign well enough to notice it has another name. You can see it down the road from the Howard Johnsons in the final photo, the shot from Rte. 128]
Ma Furlongs, Dedham – Home Port of 1938-39
