Alice & Metro | Beloved

In 1947…  the average annual salary was $2,850, a gallon of gas was 15 cents and you could buy a new car for $1,300…

Alice worked with her mom in the restaurant that was on the lower level of their house.  They served many of the soldiers since the restaurant was across the street from the Woodrow Wilson Army Hospital.  Metro worked at the hospital and met Alice through coming to the restaurant and flirting with the pretty waitress.  They dated for about 6 months and were married.  They built their own little love nest right next to where Alice grew up and began to start a family….   Metro and Alice’s family has grown quite a bit and after 63 years of marriage, they have 4 daughters (the youngest being my mom), 11 grandchildren and 4 great-grand children!
