Carlin Christensen emailed me this bright picture today. He says he is not sure of the location, but it’s somewhere between Roscoes’ and the Grange… perhaps it was the Willings Mill, at the Trout Farm (recently the Hoyles’)? Carl expressed hope that someone seeing this photo might recognize the place. (On second thought, the Willingses were there in the 1950s logging boom… though perhaps the place had held a lumber mill before they became the owners.)
