Despite two bad legs, Joe Lindsey has always walked his grandson Raleigh Lindsey to the school bus stop along 22nd Street S. In this photo, taken in March 2001 when Raleigh was 13 years old and in seventh grade, they are passing the old Harlem Restaurant at 618 22nd St. S, where a faded sign for the closed business reads, “fine home cooked food, open 7 days weekly.” The walk has been a ritual the two have shared every morning since Raleigh was in kindergarten. Raleigh has lived with his grandparents since he was 3 months old.
