From the archives:

Not Hal Roach studios
That is my dad's family, circa 1935. My dad is the pouty little dude in the middle. The guy on the left is my grandfather; in the back row is my great-grandfather, along with my grandmother. No one in this picture walks the earth any more; the baby in my grandmother's arms is my aunt Judy, who passed away a few years ago. The older girl on the left is my Aunt Margaret, who died in 1943. I love old family pictures, because it gives you a sense of the world at that time. It was during the Depression, but my grandparents had just bought the house in the background, which was brand new. While everyone is dressed modestly, this is not a picture of poverty.
