Favorite Family Photo Week continues here at OPOD with this picture submitted by Tim. It is a picture of his grandfather. The picture was taken in 1928. Pictured is John Snoderly, who grew up on a homestead in Buck Flat, Idaho. The homestead was near the small town of Grassy Hill (which is north of Three Creek, Idaho). This area was a Homestead Act project in the middle of the Idaho desert, where farmers dry farmed the land. In the 20's there was a rangefire that decimated the town, which was never rebuilt. I find these pictures interesting from the 1920's . . . such big smiles, nice clothes and optimism. What a big change occurred in such a few number of years.
Also today we have the photo above submitted by Robert Waters. He is the little guy in the picture, shown with his sisters and mother.
