Photo Number 2050

This is a snapshot from the antique shop in Brainerd Minnesota.

Celebration for three Brainerd ant

A celebration!

I know they don’t look real happy…this must be pre~celebration…and I am not sure what they are drinking.

Not sure what they are celebrating BUT this is photo 2050 and we begin another year on this blog.  It has been six years!  Hardly seems that long to me.  I have returned, with your help 245 photos to family.  Photos that were Forgotten for a time…but now are home with relatives.

Recently I sent 103 photos to a Gentleman and when he reports back to me I will write the Full Circle Post…it was a search I undertook myself after discovering a wedding book on my second trip into a Brainerd Antique Shop…suddenly I had names…and from there I tracked down a few names of living relatives…I sent out two letters and one gentleman called me on the phone and we had a delightful chat about his relatives.  Many of those 103 photos were featured on the blog but some were not…I was happy to send them off in the mail.

Thank you dear readers and researchers, without your input this blog would not be possible.

Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Is that a coat to the man's side?

    1. Yes , I noticed it, most likely it belongs to the photographer:)

  2. Congratulations on the sixth year anniversary of this blog. I love looking at the photos, and I'm delighted when photos become Full Circle. Keep up the good work!

  3. Thank You for this terrific blog. It has become as part of my routine as making my coffee pot. Have a great day.

  4. Wow, six years! Congratulations and thank you. I look forward to this blog every day.

  5. Congratulations on six years! More importantly, congratulations on reuniting those 245 photos with grateful family members. That is quite an accomplishment! Can't wait to read that Full Circle report!

  6. Congratulations on 6 years. I always look forward to your posts and hope that someday I'll see a photo on some of my ancestors that lived in the Fergus Falls, Melrose areas. The Full Circle posts are always so interesting and inspire me to keep searching.

  7. Congrats!!

    103 photos to send? wowsers!

    And there are still at least that many in the mysterious forgotten pile... like one-leg Jack!
