Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - Bill and Karen 1940

Wordless (nearly) Wednesday
Bill and Karen 1940

Don't think I've shared this one before. It is 1940, in front of Grandpa and Grandma Kinnick's house on Main Street, in Coon Rapids, Iowa. Their house is the the left of the photo. Background shows their neighbors' houses down the street. I'm on the left, my first cousin, Karen Kinnick, is on the right. Classic photo... not much more to say.

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. When did they move out of this house?

  2. Very good question. By the time Buzzy came back from serving with the occupation forces in Japan, they were living on the 'Harvey place' out north of town on the Glidden road. He graduated in 1946; he served 18 months. That would put his return in 1948, I'd guess.
