Sepia Saturday: My Dad

For most of my younger life, my dad owned his own business. He was a masonry contractor here in Arkansas - mostly commercial construction.

I got this photo yesterday in my email.

I had never seen it before.

Photo taken September 1958

I had no idea he had the same type of business when he and my mom lived in Florida, where I and my middle sister were born.

That's my 22 year old dad in the driver's seat. The photo was taken in 1958, the same year I was born.

Here's that street address today.


Dad will be 76 years old tomorrow.

Happy birthday, Dad.

I love you.

This is a Sepia Saturday post. Head over there for more interesting old photos and postcards.
