Days Gone By

These are two old photos of Gregg's grandfather, his Dad's Dad. That side of the family originally came from Norway and settled in North Dakota, where many of the family still live.

That's interesting Denise. So in reality you both originated from the same Western Europe area. You were obviously meant to be together.

Interesting photos - the one of him on a horse is most impressive. So fascinating, so many hidden stories.

These are wonderful. I try to imagine what life was like for a Norwegian in the West. I've read Little House on the Prairie and Laura Ingalls Wilder's biography, so I can guess it was tough but exciting.

Isn't it nice looking at old photos? And also to know who the people were in the photos.

This is interesting..I should fish some out.. Great post here..yes-a "Norwegian cowboy". I got into the geneology..and those alive now became so difficult that it sort of caused me to re-think that.. maybe they were all a big fat pain! Ha-grins- I have to pick it up again...

These are terrfic. No amount of digital or photoshop can capture the art of early photography. Real treasures.
