During our vacation, my sister-in-law showed us all the photos she'd gotten after The Doctor's Mother passed away. I had just finished showing her our road trip photos.
The San Antonio River Walk was on one of our stops. She gave me this one...
her Mother (my mother-in-law) with an art exhibit on the San Antonio River Walk in 1947! Even though the photo had Nov 1947 stamped on the top, we're not quit sure when the photo was taken. See that little girl in the playpen? That's the Doc's older sister and seeing as The Doc was born in Jan 1948,he could be in the photo, too. But the even cooler thing about this photo is we have 2 of the pieces of art in our home.
This is Lulubell, and in the photos she's on the left.
And this one is of a Russian church in northern California. It's pretty much dead center on the bottom. Thank you people of San Antonio for not buying these two pieces.
I know Lulubelle was made in the early 1940's when Lila was in collage at San Jose State. She went on to marry Wes, have 5 children, be a special ed teacher in southern California, be a Grandmother to 9 and Great-Grandmother to 5. She passed away in 2011 a couple of months after her 90th birthday.
