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 (top photo, at left) and a friend once played in April 1924. Across Grand River, the streetscape remains largely unchanged.
