Dad recently sent me some newspaper clippings from the Galveston Daily News, June, 1950. They're about a theft from a store Granddaddy owned. Or maybe not. He comes across as a sort of low-rent noir character in these. Which wouldn't be entirely inaccurate.
I give you the mystery of my grandfather Lake and the cracked safe. Unfortunately, the resolution of the matter appears to be lost to history.
The building which once housed my grandfather's grocery store in Galveston, TX, at the corner of 10th & K, where the alleged misdeeds took place. He operated this store during and after WWII.
