    I love the book. It’s so interesting. I wish i had more memories from my Grandmother from Finland.
    Specially I like also the old photos.
    Now it’s great to see new photos from the same places and with the Author of the book.
    What a great idea.

      If you double click on these pictures they will enlarge. Thanks to Marcie for the idea of the book alongside the creek.

    Then and now… These photos are a lovely way to “bridge” the timeline. While my mental images of Elsie up to now have been faded, sepia-toned, black-and-white pictures, your new photos jar my brain into comprehending Elsie’s real world back then was stunningly vibrant and in Technicolor.

      Thanks Marcie- Old photos do tend to create in our mind a sepia-toned life. Oak Creek is just beautiful and sitting there where she sat nearly 100 years ago was a super nostalgic moment. Thanks much for your generous review.

    I’ve reread the book and recommended it to others- my daughter’s mother in law ordered it- I’ve yet to find out how she liked it.

    Love these pics!!
