I’ll send you Meg the pictures Ray took This is at Sylvan Lake  I am having same finished in color by The National Photo Co of Janesville Wisc.  Taken on trip into the Black Hills Sept 47

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. So the family was having the photos colorized? I guess I'd never thought of that as being a commercial service offered to everyone. It always seemed like the personal touch of someone's artsy hobby to me. There's a lot more to the history of photography than I realized, I guess.

  2. Do the lakes in Minnesota look like this? I was thinking more like Wisconsin (Dells)...until I saw it says Black Hills SD.

    Sylvan Lake still looks much like it did in 1947,
