my grandparents, again

Here's a picture, which I like very much, of my grandparents in Edinburgh, Scotland, where they met in 1928. Both were in medical school at the University of Edinburgh.

My grandfather did his first two years there and then went back to finish up at the University of Pennsylvania. My grandmother arrived and also finished two years (she was at the university with my grandfather for one year and finished her second year after he'd gone back to Pennsylvania), before moving to Pennsylvania, marrying my grandfather, and continuing her studies at Women's Medical College.

And here's a picture of them in 1994, 66 years later. I miss them.
