My uncle went there [US] 1920, but he never returned — at least not to live. He visited after 42 years though.
Imagine, just the actual TRIP, back then! Nowadays we board a comfortable aircraft and spend a number of hours there.
Yes, it must have been a great journey back then.
You can depend on a carpenter who makes his own tools, he does it right the first time.
these old tools are awesome incredible!!!!! Thank you for sharing with us.
Ja, vilken resa! Min farfar var i Canada på 30-talet och högg timmer, det var inga pytteträd direkt!!!
Det var hårda gubbar “förr i tiden” 🙂
… och gummor, naturligtvis. 🙂
My people Hoels came from Norway in 1868, grandma Virtanen was Sami.
