recreations as well. Here Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gardner (left) spend a quiet interlude
at home, listening to the radio.

School for the Blind. Mac plays piano, cornet, trombone, guitar and mandolin,
while Bob has a perfect ear for pitch. These two old friends teamed up as a harmony
duo about 17 years ago and have been playing and singing together ever since.
