Sliding into a New Year
In the winter of 1933, Leland (standing) and Robert Dickerson had fun in their backyard following a big snowstorm. The Dickersons had just moved from 5823 Beechwood Avenue to 5946 University Avenue. Jesse Earl and Esther Dickerson decided to move from one bungalow to another because the University house was closer to School #85 (pictured) and the kids could cut through the backyard and never have to go near a busy street. If you look closely, you can see that Leland is holding the family dog, Cindy. The Dickersons would dwell at this address until finally building a new home on North Arlington Avenue in 1937.
