Great Laz 2011-02-14 14:37

Great shot. It almost says that it's an old photo scanned in. I think there was a segment on PBS about this property and owner wasn't there? If memory serves me, it was an elderly lady that ran the place and she had all old memorabilia inside. A boat launch and bait stop. I love the back roads of America, there is such history to see if you look.

Again, great shot.

Default To Laz: Minnow Shack

Jim,
Thanks for stoping by.

This icon of the Northwoods is only a few miles from my mother-in-law's home. She lives in the Star Lake/Sayner area in Villas County north of Eagle River. I have seen it many times over the past 25 years and you are right, a pair of maiden sisters ran this shack until they both passed away several years ago.

I have shot more recent images but the have replaced the roof of the shack with a green metal one, so some of the nostalgic charm is gone, but the old roof was rotting away.

Since you are living in Wisconsin, maybe there was something on Wisc Public Television.

By the way, I see you are looking for a new camera and being a 40 year Canon shooter I highly recommend them.

Pleasure meeting you on TE. I am also on TN and TL.
