1965

We finally built a double garage for 1015 N. Blvd in 1965. Walt bought 10-foot 2 x 4’s to have a 10-foot tall garage. Unfortunately, his sons didn’t realize that he really wanted a 10-foot tall garage, instead noting that the house had 8-foot walls, and thinking that they were two feet too long. By the time they learned of Walt’s intent, it was too late … so the garage had 8-foot walls.

Building a garage for 1015 N. Blvd. Walt is on a saw house on the driveway. Uncertain who is on the root. (It’s one of his sons.)

Here Weldon and Wes are trying out the new bicycle built for two, with Wilford following on his bicycle. The photo is on the street (North Blvd.) in front of our house. In the background is the Matthews’ home, eastward across the street from our home.
