Ced’s Coming of Age Adventure (10) – Uncle Kenneth Peabody’s Farm in Star Prairie, Wisconsin – July 1934

The following pictures are of Uncle Kenneth’s farm (Arla’s Uncle, her father’s brother, Ced’s Great-uncle) in Star Prairie, Wisconsin. Ced traveled to the farm after his four days at the Chicago World’s Fair. I believe these pictures were taken when Ced and his older brother, Dan, were on their way to Alaska in 1940. The last one, showing Muriel as a young girl, was definitely taken at that time because she was only 7 months old when Ced made his first stop there. I don’t think things have changed much in the years since Ced’s first visit.

Tomorrow I’ll start a week of letters from 1945. Dan’s wedding is on everyone’s mind but it hasn’t happened yet.
