Historia type: Photograph & Transcribed oral history

“My Dad came from Syria. He was probably 14 years old. He was an orphan. He had two younger brothers. He had an Uncle in El Paso. So he got a boat from Syria to Veracruz, Mexico and a train to Mexico City and to Juarez. All the controversy that’s happening over there [Syria], they left that to get freedom. They left that, came to Juarez. He was a peddler- sold door to door in Juarez and when he got his passport came here [El Paso]. Him and my uncle opened a furniture store. They were partners for 25 years. So Then my brother and I didn’t want to be in the furniture business so he sold to my uncle and then we opened the car wash in 1958 and have been operating ever since- 62 years.” - Maynard Haddad
