My Grandparent’s Home

This was my grandparent’s home in Winchester Massachusetts. The photo is from 2017. My grandparents lived here from the late 1920’s to the early 1940’s. I am thinking of them today because one of my cousins has sent me photographs of the dinner service that my grandparents used when they lived in that house . I don’t know when that house was built but I’m guessing it might have been in the 1920’s.- a long time ago now.

My cousin is planning to pass that dinner service on to a family member of the next generation. I wonder if it will be used for dinner parties in the 2020’s and ’30’s. I wonder ……..dining is far more casual now. But there might be an occasion for more formality, who knows.

  1. Beautiful home, you are correct not much formal dining anymore, I find myself with a plate on my knees in front of the TV. I do put out the ‘good’ China whenever I can.

  2. I took the photo in 2017 when I was visiting my cousin who lives nearby. The family that was living in the house at that time were very obliging when I explained who I was.
