My dad sent me the photo below as a follow-up to yesterday’s post. (You remember, the one about my grandfather going to see his old friend Fred Dearborn perform.)
This was taken in August 1959 at Lake George, in the central Massachusetts town of Wales. It was my dad’s only trip to Lake George, which was a favorite hangout of my grandpa and his friends when he lived in Springfield.
My dad believes the shorter, balding man in the back row is Fred Dearborn, and his wife and mother are both seated in the front row.
This also happens to be a superb picture of my grandfather, who is seated in the front row, smiling as if he owned the place.
