I took the photo of Elizabeth and myself in the early 1930s. Of course, we also took a picture of the two of us together, but this is the one I like—just her and my hand. At the time I had a little self-timing device and I used it so I could get into the picture. I had found it in 1914 in Hungary and I still have it.
