Post A Magic Carpet Ride

1950; My Mom And Dad with 9 children started to think about a trip west to California from Stoneham Ma, at the time. Now, keep in mind that at the time I was 6 years old and wasn't preview of all of their thoughts. "And In No Way Neglected"!

My family, Mom, Dad and 9 siblings took the Northern route out to California and it took us 34 days. Went site seeing when we'd stop to do maintainance, wash cloths and such. Lets see here, 1952 I was 7 years old at the time, and Life Magazine got wind of our trip and photographers followed us and took pics.
Here's a couple..
