Those were the days
In the early 1900s (the photo is undated), Leon and Victoria Douglass pose on a ship bound for Europe with four of their six children. The Douglass family lived on an Atherton estate off Valparaiso Road that is now the site of Menlo School. Leon Douglass was a pioneer in the world of recorded sound and color motion pictures.
