Dad at Livingston's

Here's Wendell checking out magazines at Livingston's in Orleans. Livingston's is long gone. It was a pharmacy, but had the best selection of mags in town. Not sure what's in there now. It's on the same block as Watson's. Next to Mahoney's Atlantic Bar and Grill.

Click on the photo above to zoom in to see some of the magazine titles. I'm sure most of them have passed into the great pulp hereafter.

Wendell: Hunting

If I didn't know this was my father, I'd be, er, a little scared. Okay, a lot scared--. My father's family had what they called a camp in the hills of Pennsylvania. This picture was probably taken there. The back of the photo has a date: Dec 48.

While my Dad was known to occasionally cast a fishing rod on the Cape, I don't remember him talking about the culture of hunting. I guess it was part of going to the camp.
