A Reader’s response . . .

A blog reader, Murray Thom, responds to last week’s blog post:

“When I saw the latest post “An Early Automobile Accident” … I was reminded of this card that was kept by my mother, Lillian (Hembling) Thom. I believe I passed it on to the Museum before we left Coral Beach in 2011.
This corner still existed when we lived in Oyama, 1940-41, and although the road was paved, Dad still honked the horn as we approached the corner from either direction.”
