Bowers and Ruth (Seaver) Fischer -- Post 329 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I am posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't "Wordless" - I am incapable of having a wordless post!

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family photograph collection from my 40 years of photo albums, boxes and piles of family photographs:

This photo was taken in the summer of 1982 in Clinton, Massachusetts at the home of Bowers and Ruth (Seaver) Fischer.  Ruth (1907-2000) was my father's sister.  She married Bowers Arnold Fischer (1906-1988) in 1930.  They had two daughters, my first cousins.  Bowers grandparents were from Germany, France, and New Hampshire.  I haven't traced his line past them.

I met Ruth and Bowers for the first time in 1967 when I went to Boston on business and then spent some time with my Seaver family in Leominster, Mass. before going on to Montreal for a radio club convention.  Bowers worked at a bank, and I needed Canadian money, and he greased those skids for me.  They were very warm and friendly people.
