Photo Number 408

I have a few different kinds of photos for a few days..cleaning up some files..getting ready for the New Year.

Squaw Lake Minnesota This is a little town in Itasca County..that had a population of 99 in the 2000 census.  It’s claim to fame is “The Avenue of the Pines.”  This is a real photo postcard. Probably from the 1930’s. 

Squaw Lake Minnesota

The sign says “Smokers Be Careful” ..the rest of it is hard to read but I bet that it says Chippewa National Forest under the emblem.

I cannot recall that I have ever been on this road..if I was ..it was a long time ago.  This may be a great road trip for next summer..it is about a two hour drive from where we live. I bought this card in an Antique Shop near Laporte, Minnesota.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  2. I can (almost) smell the gentle warm summer breeze blowing the pine scent across the road.

    The road looks paved - I bet a bunch of folks drove down it to go fishing in the lake or have a picnic.

    I want to join 'em!
