Welcome to Sunday All Day Brunch. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is new with you. As the person who cleaned out my parent's house I am the one who has all the photographs. I have been busy scanning them into the computer since some of them are decaying fast. We finish our tour of the past with these photos from the 1920s through the 1950s.
