My grandmother on a Christmas visit home to Houma, LA in 1925. She and my grandfather, who married in 1920, had moved to Chicago in 1924. She was a graduate of New Orleans Normal College for Women (now part of Xavier University). She met my grandfather while he was at Xavier. She’s driving a 1924 Buick Roadster. The mink coat was a gift from my grandfather on their wedding day.
