“The Eternal Indian, sometimes called the Black Hawk Statue (dedicated in 1911), is a 48-foot sculpture by Lorado Taft located in Lowden State Park, near the city of Oregon, Illinois.”
A hundred years ago.
My father’s parents Alta (b.1895) on left and Floyd (b.1892) on the right in overalls with the pipe in his mouth, My father’s younger brother Alan (b. 1916) along with Forrest and Martha (don’t know who they are) and my grandmother’s sister, Sis. Farmersville, Illinois.
A Photo with names written on the back
(In one of those awful sticky pages photo albums, the type that ruin the photographs)-
Durand Illinois about 1916. The only people I can identify are my maternal grandparents. These two photos are next to one another in my Grandmother’s Album.
My father’s mother, the one who taught me to knit, stitched this saying I have on my wall.
Being covered in glass, the photo is tricky.
My sister sent me this photo of the doily our paternal grandmother made. It sits on a chair at my sister’s home. Years ago, I’d stitched it onto the solid fabric pillow.
It’s a good way to display an old fashioned hand crocheted doily. The shape suggests it was to protect the chair back where your head would rest.
Certainly we’ve spent a lot of time at home this past year.
From what I can tell that’s my great grandfather on the left. No marks or notes on these two pics .
