This may be family.

I am from Rochester Mass. Both parents raised there and my mother recently died at the age of 99. She and her siblings worked picking the cranberry bogs from age 3 on up. I have the twin of the tin cranberry measure Merilda is carrying. I am going to show this picture at the next family reunion!!! What a find.

Amazing, amazing picture.

Amazing, amazing picture.
