Yes, the photo doesn’t appear to be taken in late November, does it?

Grandpa Dague also would pick up mailbags from the Post Office take them down to the railroad tracks in Lodi and put them on a hook( arm) that the train would pick up and they would throw out a mail bag for him to take back to the Post Office. Judy and Larry would go with him sometimes when they were little. Later he and Grandma would answer phones at Elliot’s Funeral Home. Edith Elliot was grandpa’s niece. And grandpa would drive their ambulance occasionally to pick up people. They were the only ambulance service at that time.

Interesting on marriage license Bert’s occupation is listed as restaurant proprietor. I never knew this. I knew he worked for the Gas Company at one time. Columbia Gas I believe.

I thought Grandma told me that this photo was taken on their wedding day? I have an enlargement hanging on my wall and have always referred to it as their wedding picture….
