An excerpt from the most magical dream we could find... All we can decipher about the author is that his name is Pip, and his wife is Helen.

Wow what a great day! I spent it panning for nuggets of history. While the Sierra Star is alas not digitized thus searchable online, the old back issues are an amazing source of old photos and historical data. I had to do it the old fashioned way, page by page stating with the first addition. The reward were more pictures of early Fish Camp in the 1800s, names of folks there and businesses there.... WOW. .

Another souvenir, this one from Estonia. A book (in Finnish) of hundreds of gloves and mittens from around Estonia, ranging from the mid-19th to early 20th centuries. The patterns are charted and amazing.

Thrilled to announce the launch of my website www.archiveweaver.com. Looking forward to working with many more wonderful and talented publishers, authors and creatives. I'll now leave you with this beauty by Morris Huberland.
.
Title: "Montage (wall, eyes and viewers), 1940.
.
Morris Huberland was born in Poland in 1909. His father, a rabbi, immigrated to New York City in 1920 and his mother departed Bremen in 1924 with Morris and the rest of their family, settling in New York's Lower East Side with her husband shortly thereafter. After some time studying at rabbinical school, Morris turned his interests toward photography joining the Photo League in 1940. He cited Eliot Elisofon’s lectures on photojournalism as influential to his artistic approach. Morris exhibited his work at various New York City institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art, the International Center of Photography, the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, and the Jewish Museum.

Sunday vibes (Image from page 204 of "Wild brother; strangest of true stories from the north woods", 1921).
.
"To him it made no difference whether a chair had two, three, or four legs. Imagine then my consternation one afternoon when I saw him bound into the front hall through the door, which had inadvertently been left open. I rushed after him, to save the furniture, or pick up the pieces and clear away the wreck. At first he could not be located. Everything was in order - nothing broken, and all quiet. Presently a glad shout of relief from Comrade brought me to her side. There, comfortably ensconced in a velvet-seated chair, sat our friend Bruno. He had evidently come for an afternoon call and was now patiently waiting for tea to be served. For his gentlemanly behaviour on this occasion I rewarded him with three figs and a small bunch of raisins; then, politely and cautiously, I showed him the door."

Research notes (from the archives) - text reads: "But what really began putting the sheep business out of business was when the rest of the United States became interested in this public domain. You had more people living in this area, and a whole process of restrictive use of that public domain for grazing began, and although the cuts were spread over a period of years, you have got a seventy-five percent cut in the amount of land you could use to fatten your animals, and even though this was spread over a period of, say, five years, you couldn't handle that"
