Hill Country Color: 1952

Hill Country Color: 1952

"7 October 1952 -- At Old Matt's Cabin." Hubert and Sally at the Shepherd of the Hills homestead, a farm in the Ozarks made famous by Harold Bell Wright's 1907 book, and the start of Branson, Missouri's transformation into a tourist destination. Kodachrome slide by Grace Tuttle. View full size.

My Sally

My Dalmatian Sally (We had when I was a lad of 17 or 18) never got to do this. We lived in the heart of London at the time and all she saw was the tube and our house, and maybe the back yard.

I can live the dream for her through this Sally though.

Thanks Shorpy for bringing back a memory of one of my most precious.

The Real Star

Her supporting cast varies from shot to shot, but the chief attraction is always the comely Sally.

Restraining Sally

I look at this and I just know that it was followed shortly after by Hubert yelling for Sally as she went off after a squirrel.

I bet getting from Minnesota to Branson was a lot more fun in 1952. Now it's just set the cruise control and argue over which satellite radio station to listen to while the kids watch DVDs.
