A Family Portrait
The Dobbin Family
Wally, Blanche, and Barbara in a studio portrait taken in 1936. By this time, Wally had more regular and steady work at the Washington train terminal. He eventually would become a yardmaster there, sorting out the many trains that came into Washington everyday.
They lived in Hyattsville now on Drury Rd. in a rental house. In June of 1938, they moved into a brand new house on Livingston St., which became the home that I remember.
