Reminiscing for the Nostalgic

"The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealized past." - Robertson Davies, A Voice from the Attic

I'm Kelly; lover of the 1940s, Gene Kelly, and Jesus. This blog is devoted to early 20th Century history, period dramas, Doctor Who, and my sexy French lover, Jean Dujardin.

Maple Lake Church, Minnesota (1915)
This picture was discovered in an old frame at my grandparents’ house. No one was sure what it was from, but I found these details on the back.
Oh, and the church is still standing and in use today. :-)
