Key West, Florida - November 7, 1948.

1940 Chevrolet Club Coupe
The girls were born in November 1947 at Lakehurst, New Jersey. Shortly after that Dad was transferred to a blimp squadron at Naval Air Station Boca Chica at Key West, Florida.

On January 15, 1948 Dad and family took off for Corsicana, Texas in our 1940 Chevrolet Club Coupe. He usually took leave and headed for Corsicana before reporting to his next assignment. Around 2:30 in the afternoon the next day, January 16th, right outside of Cookeville, Tennessee on Highway 70, coming down a steep hill that was iced over, the car slid into the ditch and turned over. No one was hurt and fortunately there was a farmhouse just up the hill. The people that lived there took us in for several days and helped with the girls who were just a few months old at the time.

According to Dadís notes on the back of the picture, $289.38 for repairs.
