Here, gathered in our beloved South Dakota, are a few members of our Williamson / Mattson Clan. Charles and Luella are to be blamed (be kind, they didn't know what they were doing). We're generally a happy bunch and somewhat intelligent (notwithstanding our tenous grasp on reality). I'm also proud to say that most of us still have our teeth.

Aunt Bev's Photo Album. Spearfish, South Dakota. 1973/74

From the Fortress of Solitude
Pleasant Grove

Hello All,
Tonight in our digital gathering we pass around more pictures from Aunt Bev's family photo album documenting the every growing Mattson clan in the early 1970's.  These pictures were taken at the Mattson home in Spearfish, South Dakota.  Aunt Bev's handwriting can be seen in the margins.  Please excuse the scanner for cutting off the part of the descriptions.  What you can read is good enough to make out the meaning.   

Several of the photos are dimming with age.  Others are color shifting and darkening.  The distortions are due to the actually photo and age.  I did my best to correct the color.  Other photos are displayed in both their poor state and in black and white.  By removing the color, I was able to bring some clarity to the photo. 

The gems in today's post are 

1.  Joseph's first photo at 1 week old. 
2.  Kirk off to his first day of Kindergarten. 

Simply,
Victor
