menu
“This is a menu from 1943 – war rations dictated what they sold and prices. I guess that’s how they lived on 50.00 a week.”

 

Jesse Brewer Orbituary
Jesse’s obituary from 1971. It’s odd reading this – of course, I know he’s dead, but reading his diaries every day makes it feel like he might come walking through my door any minute, up for a game of cribbage.

Forges Green, Engstrom's House
Forges Green, Engstrom House, where Walder and Victoria Engstrom lived after 1952 (I’m not sure I have that year correct. Also, this is the house Anne Verre and Andi Diehn grew up in. It was sold in 1993.).
