Saying Good-bye

Catalog Code: 
1- 1432
Description: 

Another poignant home front scene of "Daddy" going off to WW I.  My father had met my mother, a high school senior in Providence, RI, before leaving Brown U. in 1917 to enlist in the Army( as a private, not an officer as depicted here) but from family "lore" they had already fallen in love .  But they could not marry until she had graduated from Pembroke College in Providence, RI, my father had returned from war and started a career, and, the greatest obstacle, my mother's oldest sister was married (which never happened!)  Times were very different in those days.
