Dr. Geetter visiting sister-in-law Sophie Barrett Waikiki January l945 #942 p 39
Photo by Commander Jack Barrett. Rocking chairs were purchased by Sophie with Lillian Arroyo spring l942 when almost no furniture was available with wartime shortages in Hawaii - last chairs in store but very comfortable and useful for over five years. When the Barretts returned to mainland l947, they gave the two rocking chairs to John retired fifth grade teacher at Thomas Jefferson School, Agnes Dee Davidson, who lived at Lewers Road, Waikiki. Palm tree and panax hedge mark boundary of Barretts' yard and Needles next door - further down Ala Wai Boulevard large poinciana tree appears in background.{F}{H}{S}
