Grandma's Photo Album Page 84 - Snyders on the Blue Ridge Parkway and in Massachusetts in Winter
The Tom and Nora Snyder family and friends drove up to the Blue Ridge Parkway about 1950.

(Bottom left) Left to right: Mrs. Broyhill holding one of her daughters, Nora Snyder, another Broyhill girl, then Betty and Mozelle.
(Bottom right) Nora and Tom Snyder. Nora Bessie McNeil (1900-1992) wears a shawl that I believe her mother knitted. Clara Eva Hettie Ellen Jarvis McNeil (1873-1959) knit a shawl for each of her six daughters. The shawls were double-sided, different color on each side. But Nora still looks cold!
Tom was Wiley Thomas Snyder (1892-1988). It must be a Sunday because he is not wearing denim overalls, he is wearing his Sunday best suit.
(Top right) Tom and Nora's oldest son, Jimmy, by his Airstream Trailer in Gloucester, Mass. James Neil Snyder (1922-1993) joined the Coast Guard in 1939. While serving, his ship was in the Gloucester area, and he met his future wife, Kay (living). Jim and Kay lived near Kay's family.
