Uncle Don and Uncle Buddy

This photograph was taken at 10 Roosevelt Avenue in Hamilton, Massachusetts in the late 1930s.  It looks like it was winter because they are all bundled up in snowsuits and hats.

These are two of my mother's five brothers, Donald Franklin and Joseph Gilman Allen.  They are the two children born just before Mom out of the seven children in the Allen family.  No one ever called Joseph by his given name, he was always known as Buddy.  Both these uncles are still living in Massachusetts.  This photo is from my grandmother's album, and that is her handwriting on the margin.  She was always good about labeling her family photographs.  Well... most of them!
