Family elders on my father's side (King). - itsaboutnature.net
Robert Lee King Sr. (Dad, 1926-2008)) at 8 years of age in 1934, at where I believe to be the beginnings of Rosedale Street, Portland, Maine.

The folks at Antique Automobile Club of America's forum (AACA.com) identified the truck as a 1929 Ford Model A with an all-wood cargo box.  Some were a combination of wood and steel.   I verified they were correct when I "google imaged" that make, model and year.  Thanks to AACA.com and Google Images.

Yes, it is curious why Dad is holding his hands behind his back.  Kids are not disciplined to do it today are they?  Nope.  All I know is this:  Grammy (my late Grandmother and Dad's Mother) told me that when Dad was young she imprinted onto him that "he was gonna be a gentleman if it killed him".  And so, she named him after Robert E. Lee, that well-known gentleman and Southern Confederate General
