Found a Treasure Long Ago


Memory Shared: I was working with my father tearing down the "La Fiesta" ballroom in downtown Kansas City. It had sat for several years and served as storage for the owner. I guess the city had maybe condemned it but my dad was hired to tear it down. 
I was probably about 10 years-old a the time and rummaged through 3 stories of the building and probably 50+ yrs. of accumulation. I found several pieces of the red J&G Meakin dinnerware pieces with all the cottages and different scenes that I thought they were so neat. I have since got married and had children and now have them displayed in my china cabinet. Thanks Robert S.
