Vintage Point: Kids will (still) be kids

Editor’s Note: Maria Taylor’s photo column, “Vintage Point,” shows scenes from Farmington’s past with photos of those same scenes today.

Times may change, but kids will still be kids. Here, Liam and Sophie Stacey of Farmington pose on the front lawn of the Governor Warner Mansion, where Warner’s grandson William Slocum (at left) and a friend once played in April 1924. Across Grand River, the streetscape remains largely unchanged.
