Vintage photos of:

My great-great-grandparents Fred and Emma Schubert in their wedding photo, taken April 13, 1888. Emma was born in Schleswig, Germany on October 7, 1863 and died on June 24, 1912; she was buried in Kiel, Wisconsin. Fred Schubert was born in Lesohwitz bei Goritz, Germany on November 21, 1852. He came to this country with his parents at age nine and settled in Sheboygan, Wisconsin where later he became a wagon maker. In 1880, however, he entered a partnership with his brother Paul Schubert and started a photo studio in Kiel, Chilton and New Holstein. He continued the partnership until the time of his death. They also went on to have six children. All my photos are those of the Schubert Bros. studio. View full size.

The late, lamented Great White Steamer, the SS Catalina in Avalon Harbor. Built in 1924, it was the only way to travel to Catalina Island with class. Its fate was to lie buried in the mud off of Ensenada Harbor, later to be broken up for scrap. Kodachrome slide taken by my dad in 1965. View full size.
