Slowly, over time, you will learn all about my life and my ancestors!
Here is my dapper young father, John Herbert Williams, known as Jack because his father's name was also John. He is strolling down the streets of downtown Vancouver.
Unfortunately there is no date, but I would say this was around 1950 - 1952, when my Dad was 21 - 23 years of age. Isn't he handsome? I believe the department store in the background on the left was Spencers. (maybe Spencers Emporium?)
Notice the lack of plastic shopping bags! Notice the lack of jeans.
I love this era! The women dressed up when they went out, even if it was just grocery shopping. I like being casual, but not all the time. Look at the hats they are wearing!
I don't know the name of the man standing beside him.
His good friends, Paul and Elizabeth Plesko are in front of him, with Elizabeth's sister Mary Nagy. My Dad hung around with them a great deal.
