But he did marry the girl of his dreams.

  1. Nice pictures. Your Dad looks very happy holding Mom's hand. Thank you for your list of helpful genealogy sites. Having Scottish roots with many moving through Ireland then England to the USA they should prove very useful. TY, JLK/NK

  2. Both your dad and his dream car look pretty cool.

  3. I can just about remember those wonderful cars with the wood beams. All three are great photographs and offer so much to explore.

  4. I wonder what the notice in the back window said. For Sale? Good series of pictures.

  5. Whata neat little picture story told so succinctly. A good-looking Dad too! Those cars with the wooden beams, as Alan points out, were around when I was growing up too, and I once heard the comedian Barry Humphries describe them as ‘half-timbered cars’ .This was a style of building around in England in the Middle Ages!

  6. That final photo is really wonderful. Your folks surrounded by all the signage really setting a specific time period. Great shots.

  7. Such fond memories of important moments in your parent's nicely presented...great honeymoon car too! Thanks!
