This is an old family photo. We are not sure exactly who it is. We think it might be Great Uncle Herman. I wish we knew for sure who it was. It is a marvelous old photo.
Where: This photo was taken at the Headwaters of the Mississippi River up in Itasca State Park. Why: Because it is traditional that someone take photos of you when you walk across the rocks. When: Well preferably when there is no snow or ice. When was this photo taken..I will guess sometime in the 1940â€™s or early 1950â€™s in August.
Yes, August..the weed beds are very similar..so I think August. This is a photo that I took of my husband and a very good friend Sue. She was thrilled to be able to walk over the Headwaters of the Mississippi in August of 2008.
Tourists coming into the museum sometimes ask â€œWhat do you recommend seeing in this area?â€ I always encourage them to head to Itasca State Park during their stay:)
