Flashback to 1957

Far Guy and I had a discussion this week about the neighborhood.  We wondered exactly when the old Linnell School was demolished. We think it must have dissappeared in the late 1960’s or early 1970’s.  You could see it from the farm where I grew up …it should show up in photos.  I couldn’t remember any photos.

Then I was looking at an old photo of my baby brother…who will soon be older than me even though he was born second.

The school is above my baby brothers head.  We are standing out by the old lightpole and near the cloths line, the pasture is in the background and the school is beyond the pasture.

I think this photo was probably taken in 1957…that is how many years ago…sixty if my math is correct.

Today is the day 63 years ago that I became a big sister.  I think I should get an award or something.

Happy Birthday to my baby brother!

  2. It was 5 am March 26th 1954 in the middle of a snow storm. One of my first memories is being inside that school house for a gathering of some type, Dad carried me out to the car. I believe I was about 2. Thanks for the Birthday wishes. 40 years as an Engineer says I have to be old.

  3. Guess that was back before Global Warming, when March was always a very snowy month! Happy Birthday, baby bro.

  4. A precious picture! Photos capture a moment in time. Don't you wish you could go back and hear what you two were saying, listen to the sound of your young voices...I always like to think about the person who took the picture. Who were they?

  5. What great pictures! It's too bad someone couldn't have converted it into a home rather than destroy it. I hate to see old buildings torn down or not taken care of. There are young couples (and old women) who would love to get a 'fixer upper' at a reasonable price.
    What a cutie pie in that baby picture....I guess we were all cute at one time! LOL! Happy Birthday 'little brother'...I always wished I'd had a brother or a sister but it wasn't in the cards thus the reason I had a hard time being a "team player" at work....too independent for my own good, I guess! I hope you all have a great Sunday!

    Happy birthday to your baby brother, and congratulations to his big sister.

  11. It's surprising how many things completely disappear and then we start wondering where they were.

  12. Great that you found that picture. It's strange the things we suddenly remember and wish we had a photo memory.
