Found Film: Grandpa Albert’s House on the Coast

For months, I have been sharing photos believed to have been taken by Raymond Albert in the late 1940s through the mid-1950s.  In total, the collection consists of about 23 rolls.  This post highlights roll number 21.  I’m guessing the current roll was taken around 1956 or 1957.

In this roll we are mainly looking at a family reunion of some sort.

In our previous post, I thought we might have been at a lake house owned by Raymond Albert’s parents, but instead, the much more modest home on this roll is more likely where they lived. They spent much of their lives on Waldo Street in Rumford; this appears to be a bit more rural, near the coast, and possibly where they moved after retirement.

What a great photo this is. Peeling potatoes in the open air.

Lots of group photos on the front stoop with Grandma and Grandpa.

And it appears that Raymond Albert may have sprung for a brand new car – a 1955 or 1956 Plymouth Belvedere.

And somebody was into boating…

Finally, a couple of pictures which appear to have been taken elsewhere – maybe back in Rumford. Catholic readers may be able to tell me what type of event this was.
