Mama and Daddy's first apartment in Chicago cost them all of $20 a month, a lot in 1932. They were more fortunate than most, as they were both working. So many people lost everything during the Great Depression.
And what automobile were they driving when they married? Daddy always had new car fever, as long as I can remember, so he had just bought a brand new 1933 Silver Pontiac, with 6 wire wheels. It was a really fancy sporty car, with 4 wire wheels on the ground and 2 mounted on the fenders. Of course I'm prejudiced, but they really were a very handsome couple, and I'm sure they really cut quite a figure in this snazzy car.
In case you're curious, here's a red one for sale on the Internet for only $30,000. (Click on the picture for more views and information.)
