Throwback Thursdays - September 3, 2015



It's Thursday!  This week, I'm offering three photos, as they go together.  They were all taken around the same time, and all taken on the farm in Michigan. 










Interesting that my grandmother said the the farm was in Detroit...  looking at the photos, you would never know that there was anything around for miles!  This one has a bit of Lake Michigan in it.

This one, on the porch with the dog, is the most interesting. That's great-grandfather John on the right.  The story goes that he was ice skating on Lake Michigan and fell through the ice.  The dog went in and pulled him out, saving his life.  Thank you, dog!!!!

All of these photos are ca. late 1870s.
