Jay: Hi From Cold In Iowa! I always enjoy your pictures, but wow - one from my area!! Remember All that dreaded MUD IS WHAT GIVES US THE BEST AG LAND IN THE WORLD!!! Cresco is just north of us (home of the famous all alu trailer). My best man at our wedding (40 years this July) grew up on a dairy farm just outside of Cresco! How can I get a copy? Thanks & keep it up. John
John, Glad you enjoyed this photo, I sent you a PM. Jay
May be me but the dog just don't look right.
Gary, I agree.
That's a big dog , should have a harness and help pull . wink, wink
The roads there weren't much better there on Monday this week.
I had a truck driver turn around and come back because there were cars stuck in drifts in the middle of HWY 63 between Cresco and New Hampton.
Did they have photo-shop back then? Great pic but I agree, what's with that dog? Haven't seen ears that big even on a Basset Hound!!
Sorry Jay, not picking your pic apart, really.
Just having some fun with the mutt!
Two possibilities on the dog:
1. A photo was shot of the original print with Fido pasted in place.
2. I forget the name of the process but it was used extensively in newpaper photos. I think it was simply a matter of outlining individuals, or certain objects so that they would stand out more clearly from a background of similar shade. Used to notice it a lot in some of the ancient history books I got to read in school.
I think this dog was pasted in.
Here's another photo from roughly the same time line.
I thought I'd check a street view and compare, but apparently they haven't done Elm Street.
They made some movies about Elm Street, the star was Freddy.
My wife lived on Elm St. (different town) when I first met her (in third grade). Her maiden name is the same as the girl in that movie!
Look at how wide that street is! Like 6 lanes worth at least for T's, and a good four for todays cars. Neat looking little town.
