Albert Lane


This early 20th century home, built by Mrs. Charles Gilbert, was for years the location of "Miss Alice's" first grade classroom, where lucky little folks learned reading, writing and 'rithmetic and tasted from her mother's marvelous kitchen. Pictured by Albert Lane in 1977. Mr. Lane had lived there for a time and obviously loved the house.For many years, in the season when my mother made chow-chow, all the little first graders lined up and went into the kitchen to receive the first sampling which was served on half a cracker. The recipe for the Chow-Chow can be found in the cookbook.
