I guess that I will show you a few people in their work places this week. This photo was in my original box of finds from an Antique Shop in Park Rapids, Minnesota..the one that started this journey of “Forgottens”

I was curious..where was this photo taken? I searched for Morris Lake and Superwood Corporation and came up with an obituary for Morris Lake.
He was a Veteran who was wounded in WW2. He was a family man. He made a career out of working for Superior Wood which became Superwood Corporation and then later Georgia Pacific. He died in 2009. I believe he may be the gentleman in the coveralls with his hands crossed in front of himself.
I located an address for one of his children and I will mail off a copy of this blog to him, if he would like the original photo I will mail it out. It is not often that I search for a name and come up with as much information as I did..so I figure it was meant to be.
Oh and the picture..comes from Duluth, Minnesota…and I will guess that the photo was taken in the late 1950’s or early 1960’s.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
