I believe this picture was taken in the mid-1890’s in front of the Lincoln Avenue House in Mount Vernon, NY. Grandpa had not lost his father yet and they hadn’t moved to the much smaller house on Dell Avenue. Notice the hats Grandpa and his sister, Elsie, are wearing. I believe they were wealthy at this time since his father worked on Wall Street as a Broker and the house was designed with various beautiful woods in each room.
Tomorrow I will begin posting a week of letters written near the end of 1945. The holidays are getting closer and the Trumbull House residents are looking forward to sharing them with family members.
