Summary:  George gave a lively interview about a farm boy’s life in Solebury in the 1920s.  Growing up on a farm near Center Bridge and the Delaware Canal, he had fond memories of all the activities we expect along with a unique picture of his Greenville School teacher taking students skiing on the Canal and River. While a must read for the joy of his life, we are also treated to recollections of the singular moment like the Thicken Stream Aqueduct collapse and the Delaware River completely frozen in the winter of 1933.
