Interestingly, there are many photos during this time on the Hansen farm.  I was told that the "Hansen Boys" were amateur photographers and even had a dark room in
the house.  Thus, unusual for the times, we have many photos of their life on the farm, working and enjoying the day.  It is great to have these photographs giving us,
their descendents a more personal view of the past.
