I recently learned that parts of Philadelpia Airport was once my g-g-grandfather's 100-acre truck farm! It was sold for that purpose in the 1930's.

I have not been through that airport but I figure a lot of you all have. Now you can imagine hogs wallowing and lettuces growing and a German immigrant raising a passel of kids there....

I can imagine the hogs wallowing..... but the rest of the stuff I imagined (while suffering through many delays) should probably be kept to myself!

Nice bit of family history though.
