Grandma’s Photo Album Page 41 - Paper House, Snyders and Broyhills in Wilkes County
(Top left) The paper piano at The Paper House in Rockport, Massachussets. I believe my uncle Jim sent this postcard, since he lived in Gloucester and Rockport is nearby. The Paper House is still a tourist attraction - see this web site: http://www.paperhouserockport.com
(Top right) Uncle Jim (James Neil Snyder, 1922-1993) and his wife Kay (living). I believe this photo was taking in the front yard of my grandparents' farm house on Pleasant Home church road, Millers Creek, Wilkes County, NC.
(Bottom left) This woman was a friend of my Uncle Ralph (Ralph Lewis Snyder, 1932-1996). He brought her to meet his parents, but we don't know her name.
(Bottom right) The four oldest daughters of Wanda Barnett Broyhill (1920-2010) and Louis Elmer Broyhill (1918-1999). All these girls are living, so I'll just give their first names (left to right): Myrtle, Mary Louise, Adrian, and Vicky.
I remember playing with Vicky when I spent a week each summer at my grandparents, attending Vacation Bible School. Bible school was only in the mornings, so I had lots of free time every afternoon. I would sometimes go over to Vicky's family farm and we'd play for a while, but she had chores to do. One time, we were walking along, and came upon an old neighbor lady on her front porch. She was plucking a chicken, and asked me to hold it while she went to fetch more hot water. As a city girl, I found that very yucky!
