I just learned that the Great Depression FSA photographer Dorothea Lange (Famous for "Migrant Mother" photograph) was right here photographing in my immediate vicinity in the late 30's. Here are a few complete with burned snags from the big fire that came through here.

Photo of a home of the FSA (Farm Security Administration) borrower who moved on this land six years ago, built log house and buildings. Cut enough hay between the stumps to feed eight cows, three calves and two horses through the winter of 1938. Three hundred and fifteen dollar land-clearing loan. Priest River Peninsula, Bonner County, Idaho, October 1939.

Great pictures. Love the porch kitties. Some times nothing changes.
