Standing in front of his newly built house on 607 Mansell Drive are my grandfather Chuck Lowry (left) and godfather/uncle Chuck Lowry (center, about age 3). Based on my uncle’s apparent age and other photos in the series, I imagine this photo dates to around spring of 1952. You’ll notice there is no grass in the yard. As the house was finished in the autumn of 1951, they probably waited until 1952 to plant grass.
I’m not sure who the other two people are in the photo, including the adult behind grandpa and the young girl. Perhaps a cousin? Does anyone know the name of the dog?
