In 1946 after my Dad got out of the Army, he and his brother started their own wood shop making custom cabinets. Times were lean, so for my parents first Christmas he made my Mom a knick-knack shelf. Five children later, that corner shelf is seen way in the back of this photo. I now have the shelf as a beloved family heirloom.
