Wordless Wednesday: Barn Burning

On July 14th 1908, my great grand­fa­ther Nels Johnson’s barn burned to the ground.

The story goes that his son Wal­lace had a pony in the barn and that the first ani­mal that Nels saved was Wallace’s pony. My own curios­ity is piqued by the fact that they actu­ally had time to take these pictures.
