My Grandfather and Me (unknown location, about 1950)
This is my father's father, Sol Fisher (Solomon David Fisher). I remember him as a pretty ideal grandfather for me, taking me lots of places and doing things I really enjoyed, generally being good company and an approving person (towards me, at least). He was born in 1902, when his family lived on their farm in the Catskills, in the vicinity of Divine Corners, NY. He died of cancer (he was a very heavy smoker) in Miami Beach in April of 1972, just before his 70th birthday.
