This image is of my grandparents at the Waldorf Astoria (to the best of everyone's knowledge). The date on the back says June 10th, 1952. The story goes that my grandfather had proposed to my grandmother in England. She said no, moved to America and ended up working in the Empire State Building. At some point he came after her. It should be noted that my grandmother was a bit of a spitfire. She took up electric guitar in her later years.
He served England during WWII and worked on the front line laying down wire for communications. It's said that he was witness to the fasted U-turn in history when he and his team realized they were driving towards enemy lines.
My granddad is on the right
My grandfather was an entrepreneur after the war and brought seat belts to New Zealand. My father mentioned that he was one of the first kids in New Zealand to wear a seatbelt. I did a wee bit of research and found that he also was granted a patent on belt couplings. Fancy that.
