Many years ago my Dad got the ultimate Christmas gift.
A shiny new Columbia 3-star bicycle.
This was around 1953 or so.
The Korean War was on,
every family lived like "Leave it to Beaver".
We found these pics in the early 90's.
At the time I was into these old klunkers,
and somehow dug one up..
We staged the shots in front of the same house,
45 or so years later...
I need to find the others pics with my grandparents.
Come to find out,
My Dad never really liked that bike!
He really wanted the new lighter European style 3-speed.
Totally understandable,
the Point Loma area is built on a series of hills and canyons!
This one rode like a tank.
