This newspaper clip of my grandfather

is from 1952.

I found this and the original photo in my father's belongings.

I decided to dedicate this album to him.

His name was Hans Hansen.

born in 1871 and died in 1954.

He was a carpenter, and when he had a free time he went fishing. He never came home with his fishing bag empty.

Together with my grandmother they made 13 children. My father was the last, born in 1913.

My grandmother, Josefine Caroline, had her own flower shop and was the leader of the women's liberation organisation.

She loved the famous Italian Tenor: Enrico Caruso, and played his records on an old wind up gramophone.
