Yes, the gravel was probably very hard on my knees. I guess it didn't matter, as I have been told I was a late walker, and got around quite well on all fours. As we look at the above picture, it is difficult to tell if the turn-around was there in the shade of our big beautiful trees. Unique in the neighborhood, it allowed the car to exit in a forward motion and also provided a path for the coal truck to deliver it's load directly into the cellar window. Check out the Model-A in the garage!
Can anyone help with this? Was the driveway ever blacktopped? Seems to me that may have happened once. I do remember the addition of gravel from time to time.
That gravel provided a great medium to create pretend villages and roads for the toy trucks and cars. Many a summer day was devoted to this activity.
