Vintage Lane: 1940

Howard and Dean, Sept 2, 1940My grandpa and his brother grew up in Illinois during the Depression. They experienced and knew hardship but they also knew how to have fun and work hard. Once, they rode their bikes from Pontiac to Springfield to work for a lady who lived on a hill. Later, when they grew up, Grandpa served in the military during peacetime in the ’60s and Uncle Howard competed in bicycle races.

What memory lane stories do you have of your relatives?
