Before the internet, before e-mail, before digital cameras, the family kept each other apprised of each other's doing by circulating letters and pictures via the mail. Whoever was last to receive the letters and pictures presumably kept them. Not sure where these pics are now. I believe they were Polaroid Instant Snapshots with writing on the back, that someone scanned in.
They were shot in October of 1994, Sid and Anne were clearly planning on making improvements out at lil' Camp on the Escanaba River. With these pics they are reporting on their progress here (as well progress on the aspen clear cut at the Five Forties). Looks like this may be among the first expeditions with their new Kawasaki ATV on the property.
"Beaver Tree. This is close to Camp, high above the river. The smaller tree behind and and to the left is nicknamed the Booby Tree. The large aspen s chewed almost 1/2 through and will drop down the hillside toward the river."
