My first prompt is to show you my favorite photo of one of my ancestors. I chose this photo because it shines brightly with the love and freedom of youth. Matthew Farkas and Helen Simon were either dating or just married in this photo. They appear to be so young. They married in 1938, so this photo was most likely taken during one of the Depression years. The romance of a picnic and bike riding in the park is in direct contradiction to the pragmatism of the Depression. Yet, for me, it only adds to its allure.
|The make and model of these cars could possibly date this photo, but it is beyond my expertise.|
