Betty and Her Grandfather in about 1940 -- Post 781 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

 I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is now one of my favorite photographs:

This photo is of my mother, Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002) and her paternal grandfather, Henry Austin Carringer (1853-1946).  It may have been taken in the time period 1936 to 1940, perhaps at the time of Betty's college graduation in June 1940.  The setting is probably in front of the south side of the Carringer house at 2115 30th Street in San Diego. 

My mother was only 5 feet 5 inches tall.  I didn't recall that Austin was that short, although Betty appears to have high-heeled shoes on. 

 I colorized this photograph using the MyHeritage photo tools. 

This photograph is all part of our family history.
