Verl Muncie answered the call and planted a large vegetable garden on a lot next to his in-law's home at 5225 English Avenue in 1944. In this image, he paused from his toil along with his young son, Larry for a photo. Behind them, you can see three new doubles on the northwest corner of English and Grand Avenue. In less than a year after this photo was taken, Mr. Muncie was called into service. The lot where the Muncies farmed was eventually sold and redeveloped into housing.
