Page 49, The Depression years

Pop usually got work when we traveled but I remember one time during the depression we came to Florida and he couldn’t find work, so by the time we headed back to Cheshire Massachusetts we were low on money, and Pop saw a building going up in Virginia.

So we camped across the street in the woods and Pop went over and asked for work and he got it. We stayed just long enough to earn enough money to get back home.

The owner of the property that we were on was going to make us leave then he spotted Pop’s Masonic ring so said we could stay but Pop had to dig a deep hole in the ground and put a board across to sit on for our bathroom.
