Saturday night even later

Was cleaning out a closet and found these old photos. These are my paternal grandparents. Hung them on the wall. My grandmother was French. Grandfather German and whatever. Love the hair. These two produced four children, one of whom (my uncle) was born after my grandfather died in an automobile accident on the way to catch a ship in Savannah to attend a real estate convention in Boston. My grandfather was president of the Miami Realty Board.

I never knew my grandfather, but my grandmother remarried later in life, so I had a step-grandfather. He was an educator and has a public school named after him in Miami (Oliver Hoover Elementary).
