I wanted to share this family photo of August Braun with the community. August was an immigrant from Hagen Luxembourg. In 1902 he married 18 year-old Mary Winter in Nez Perce Idaho. She was the daughter of German Immigrants. August, Mary and their children enjoyed a long and prosperous life in the Palouse wheat country in the southeast corner of Washington State.

Location: Uniontown Washington. Date: 1900.

Mmm!  I can almost smell the newly mown hay!  Thanks for the sunny summer thought during gray December.

This is Americana. If you look at the hitch, you will see there were at least two more horses pulling. What I like the best is the children on the scale. Antique now but very modern in 1900. Thanks for sharing the wonderful picture subject with all of us.

Great comment
Thank you. Words like that coming from you and others like you are encouraging. Thanks for the selection. Want to hear something funny? Mt spelling is terrible with the word check running. Nowhere above did I mention ice cream. I thought it but never wrote it.
Where did the ice cream come from?  It must have been the spell check acting up. LOL

That's quite a wagon load!  Both the wheels and the horses look too small for such a load, but obviously they could manage it. Thanks so much for sharing this. I love to see photos that show us what the past was like.

I was wondering about the load. Maybe they added more horses?
Hmmm... Maybe that's the answer. I found myself feeling sorry for the horses. Perhaps some WikiTreer will know for sure.
