I love it when a cousin sends me memories straight out of their family scrapbook! This photo is from Patsy Niehaus Cracraft, daughter of Bernard and Ruth (Holliday) Niehaus. Patsy shared this photo that’s just perfect to add to my series of Wordless Wednesday (Almost) photos that bring back memories of places.
This is the cabin at Cross Lake, Minnesota, where Bernie and Ruth went in the early 1930s, sometimes with Bernie’s brothers or cousins, to fish and enjoy the surroundings. There’s a photo of Bernie and Ruth on their vacation, preserved in the scrapbook right along side this cabin photo (to be shared later). As well as the good times this little home represents, the scrapbook compilation says how important these memories are to the family. Patsy knows the stories of these fishing trips because her parents saved them. Thanks for sharing Patsy!
