Cousin Bill! Can it really be 19 years since that summer in Seattle? That was a landmark, lifechanging experience for me, exploring the northwest by backpack and thumb, and starting it off with that week together really set the tone. Sturgeon off Astoria... I hope you are well and am glad you have found this blog. Would love to see you. Cousin Tim

Cousin Tim....my guess is a 37 buick. Love the blog

Tim Abbott

I think they are! Looking forward to seeing you both.

Miss Chestnuts

Yes, we would love to see you soon. We have lots to catch up on. Maybe the kids are old enough for the walk you describe?

Tim Abbott

All right, what about Children's Hospital, same era? If Mom or any of her sibs are reading this, do you remember where Grandpop did his residency, and whether he had a connection there as well as the Lying-in?

Tim Abbott

My thanks to you both! We are long overdue for a walk in your woodlands, Miss Chestnuts! Maybe when our long tailed friends are out and about. Please give Edgar our very best.

Miss Chestnuts

Edgar's best guess is that the car is a Ford sedan/1935 or 36. The fact that they're parked on the "wrong" side of the street is not significant if the photo is indeed taken in Boston (we park anywhere we can on those cow paths!). Also, my vague recollection is that there were big stone (not brick) gates at the "Lying-in" at an intersection much broader than the street scene shown here. But of course, these brick gates could be anywhere around the vicinity of Mass. General/Children's Hosp.,/Brigham etc.

That doesn't help you much. It sure would be interesting to know the answer to that mystery!
