More Old Photos and Chuckles

I'm not able to adjust these the way I would like to until I get the laptop back, but I came across something amusing.

 

This is the high school graduation program of the Eighth District School in I think Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

 

 

I guess back then people thought cellophane tape was great stuff, but they didn't know the damage it would do to ephemeral items like paper programs.  That's what left the stains.

 

Anyway, my Great-Great Aunt Gussie, Augusta Peterson, was a member of the Class of 1893.

 

 

I have pictures of some of the other Peterson siblings as children but haven't found one of a younger Gussie . . . yet. 

 

 

What brought a chuckle, however, was reading the scheduled events.

 

 

It's the Essay that caught my eye. 

 

 

I'll send Ms. Trout a Tweet.

1951-ish

I knew there were some more photos in the cabinet, but I didn't realize just how many there are.  Depending on what decision is made regarding the laptop - right now, it looks like I'm going to go further in debt and buy a new one -- I am going to be very busy trying to scan the rest of them.

 

These two were a priority.  I took time I didn't really have to locate, scan, and edit these to post here.

 

Taken at my grandparents' house on Owen Avenue in Edison Park, IL, probably in the spring or early summer 1951.  I think I earlier posted some other pictures taken at the same time.  Tebo is the white and brown dog, Topsy is the black one.  Topsy lived to be about 15 and was buried on their property in Roselle, Illinois.  (I remember a lot of worthless trivia.)
