An interesting chronology of a certain bridge crossing.  The next evolution will probably feature one pier.  After that?  :)

Look at all those old typewriters with those old desks & chairs. Wow.  The picture of the girls in typing class was fun.  The gal center left front caught my eye b/c I wore my hair like that when I was 12 - though the pinched-wave hairdo of the gal to her left indicates the time period was probably in the late '20s or early '30s and I wasn't born yet, then. ;)

Whoa!  That's one BIG beaver.  Don't think I'd want to meet it around a dark corner!!!

Big indeed. He must have been the one that built the Hoover dam! Thanks +La Nightingail ! :)

In 1964 a tidal wave - created by the Alaskan earthquake - hit Crescent City, CA wiping out the harbor & the first 3 blocks of town. A breakfront was built to hopefully break up huge waves before they could come in that far anymore.  It  looked like jumbled up jacks girls used to play with only they were GIANT size, and there were several rows of them.

My husband and daughter were in Rome in the spring of 2014 and yes, she had to wear a head covering in the churches and chapels.  They were part of an organized tour, but they never would have made it on $10. a day.  My hubby must have spent that much on gelato alone - every day!  He couldn't get enough of the stuff.  :)

I love gelato and can completely understand that allocation of finances :)

And it could be - back in the day - someone might have washed clothes in that creek as well?  But what a wonderful way for a boy to spend an ideal summer!

A grim reminder of just how tough life could be back then - especially for young children.  I can't help but wonder if they tried again and hopefully had at least one child who survived to adulthood.  I'd like to think so, anyway.

That one sketch is interesting in that the shepherd has a rifle rather than a crook, but if predators were around, it would certainly make sense.  The goats my husband hired to clear land were protected by Okbosh dogs who could take down a mountain lion, no problem.
This week's Sepia Saturday image is of a shepherd, photographed by Joseph Gale in the 1890s. The title of the photograph, Ninety and Nine, refers to the Parable of the Lost Sheep told in both Luke 15: 3-7 and Matthew 18:12-14...

Yes - there would have been predators and a rifle makes sense. The S T Gill watercolour seems to show a crook but also looks a bit more romantic.

I grew up just a block & a half from one of the most beautiful cemeteries I've ever seen.  It did not have a grand entrance, but it  had rolling hills of grass, a meandering creek, a waterfall, & trees everywhere from firs to blossoming types. And flowering shrubbery.  I used to walk around it just for the pleasure of seeing all its loveliness.

A sweet kiss to celebrate 25 years together.  We went out to dinner to celebrate our parents' 25th anniversary.  I was 24, my brother 21, & our two sisters 18 & 16.  This is notable because when our Dad asked Mom if she'd like a 'before dinner' drink, she replied "Not in front of the children."  We all had a good laugh over that & Mom's cheeks turned a little pink.  Neither she nor Dad drank very much except on special occasions - such as a 25th anniversary?  I can't remember, now, if she changed her mind & had one or not. :)

What a shame such a lovely part of the town's history has apparently been lost, destroyed, or both.

I'm actually a bird person - have had parakeets all my life until we accidentally got a cat who followed us home from a walk one day & stayed.  Fortunately she didn't mess too much with the bird we had at the time.  I've never really been a dog person - having had some rather unpleasant experiences with them when I was young.  But when we married, my husband had a beautiful Irish Setter he'd trained well & I did love her.  I think the behavioral training was the key.

Thank you +La Nightingail for the nice comment and visiting my blog! Yes Irish Setters can be rather high strung dogs. It's good she got some training.  Glad your birdie made it safely with Miss Kitty around. :)
