Three kids, from Joanne Pederson

Contributor: Joanne Pederson of Stillwater

Date of picture: ca. 1936

Caption: “In one of the first pictures you ran of children and ponies, goats, etc., there was a girl with a big bow in her hair. I couldn’t help thinking of the days when my sister and wore those big bows. Here we are circa 1936. Left to right: myself, Joanne; my brother, Roger; and my sister, Donna. We lived in Rush City, Minnesota.

“When I was 2, my grandmother introduced me to soda crackers and milk, and it has been one of my favorite comfort foods. We also ate bread covered with cream and sprinkled with sugar. It’s not my favorite now.”
