Hopefully not to drag this discussion too far off track, but here's another of my OWL favorites, "Maud Bows to the Virginia Creeper", taken in 1956. To me this photo does a great job of capturing a bit of rural life in the mid-1900s. How long has it been since it was "normal" for kids to drag polewood home on a sledge with a mule?

Green Cove is near Mount Rogers, the highest peak in Virginia. The Virginia Creeper line lives on as a bicycle trail.
