Whimsical Windows - Ralph at play

In 1955, Ralph looks to be ready for a round of golf
It is not this Ralph as the subject for Toby's Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors...

Actually it is my grandfather who this day is not at his normal business of leasing and fixing police and fire department radios in local towns in OH and WV. In his play clothes looking as if he was about to attack the front nine at the Steubenville Golf Club even though he didn't play. Windows involved are in his 1955 Plymouth work vehicle and the 1920s houses along Oregon Avenue. He looks like a million amid the neighborhood windows and doors...

Oh, what a handsome guy your grandfather is! You've got a lot of him in you. And is that Motorola the grandfather of the one we have today? Fascinating!

A wonderful glimpse into the past and happy memories too, for you, I'm guessing. He looks like a positive sort of fellow, your grandfather.

It's so good to have old family photos.
Who of us back then ever dreamed we would be sharing them in memes on the Internet.
