You sound like a very proud grandson.

Maybe it was justified. I'm not a violent person, but hurt someone I love and I'm probably capable of anything. ;)

It was done out of anger, after an argument. My grandfather was a large and powerful man, with a hot temper to match.
He was not a nice guy. Thankfully, his son (my dad) didn't take after him.

For decades it was a family secret. My sisters and I were forbidden to discuss the matter. Dad never said a word about it.
It wasn't until recently that I was able to find a newspaper article about the incident from an online archive.

Nothing to be proud about. In a destructive instant my grandfather damaged the lives of many people.

Getting back to photography...it could be fun visiting Joliet and take a tour (its been closed for years).
Dave3222 did a great job with his image.

Byron Hotel, Byron CA. In late 1800's and early 1900's, a playground for rich and famous and Hollywood star. First one was wood and burned down. In WWII was used to house captured Axis prisoners and interrogate them. Every 10 years someone buys and and says they are going to refurbish it, and every 5 years after that they stop the project and it sits until the next person gets the idea to refurbish it. Natural hot springs are in the area, but all capped off on the property now.
