Title

Robert Allen Childhood Photos

Description

These two photos feature Robert Allen, who lived in the Van Allen House from 1936-1938 with his family. They left to go to Sussex County in New Jersey because the father found a job there. His mother, Dorothy Van Allen, was related to the Van Allen family who built the house. In the pictures, Robert is in the middle with his brother Dick to his right and his other brother, William, to his left. His father was a fireman with Henry R. Hopper at the Oakland Fire Department.
