I’m posting photos from my collection on Saturdays with a brief explanation of what I know about each picture.
My uncle James (Jim) Hadden (1935-2005) and yours truly spent some time contemplating the mysteries of life and our plans for the universe. Actually, I was probably trying to convince him that getting an ice cream cone was a really good idea. The photo was taken around June 1958 when I was visiting my paternal grandparent’s home at 53 Darrell Avenue in Toronto.
Uncle Jim was a career firefighter in the city of Toronto and was very well liked by his colleague firefighters who enjoyed being on shift with him because he was an exceptional cook! They were not as thrilled with him, on that one occasion, when he required that they eat an appetizer of haggis before he served the main meal.
