Gordon Walker Sr at 3 Months........and Standing already ! Actually I was not Gordon Walker Sr. when this picture was taken, just plain ole Gordon Kenneth Walker born in 1930.  The Senior part did not come along until I was 34 years old.

truetone radio

This is the exact radio that we owned when I was a kid.  We had a sitting room just off the kitchen and the radio sat on a table just to the right of my Dad's chair. Quite often we were not permitted to talk when my Dad was listening to the radio,

This is a close up of the dial that allowed you to select stations.  All of the major radio stations were printed on the face of the dial.

mom on car bumper

This is my Mother sitting on the bumper of a car that I am not familiar with.  The license plate says 1928.  The Barnhart house is directly across the street. I recognize the trees in the front yard over there but they were much larger when I was about 5 years old. The tree to the left is very young as I remember climbing up in it when it was about 35 to 40 feet high.  I also noticed that there is some corn to the left of the car and our garden was further back than that..
