My Paternal Grandmother's youngest brother Max, owned a grocery store, near my Dad's boyhood home which I own. The grocery store was closed when Uncle Max went off to WWII. But during my Dad's high school years he worked there. And my Aunt met her future husband my Uncle Don when he too worked for Uncle Max and delivered groceries to 1515.
When I bought 1515, I thought I could display things I would not normally display in my home because somethings are hard to live with day to day. I remember that my Dad had still had his Galbreath Grocery jacket in my mothers cedar chest. So I found it in a box in my basement and thought it needed to be back in his bedroom hanging up on the closet door........about 60 yrs after it first hung there!
The jacket is still in great shape with the name and even 3 digit phone number visible!
My Cousin Mary found a receipt from the grocery store in Grandmother's bible. So I thought it needed to be framed and hung next to the jacket.
January 12, 1939 is the date on the receipt. Is that the delivery that Uncle Don made to my Aunt Catherine? Note the prices, and why were my Grandparents always eating oysters?
