Looking at the picture of the powerplant, I remembered a tour we took while in MHS. Noticed that the engine in front is different from the two in back and recalled being told during the tour that it was WW-2 surplus, originally intended to be used in diesel/electric submarines. Perhaps just a tale told to impress us farm kids.

Hi Dave,

How are you? Coming back to the site after a few years away. Good to know you are still running it. As our son got back to Manning, I will be around more often. Hugs from Brazil.

The 1970 Messiah pictures were a blast from my past. I can add one identification, the partially obscured woman behind Judy Jones and to her left (viewer's right) is my Aunt Lydia Musfeldt, wife of Herman Musfeldt, mother of Ruth, Dave, Tom and Sam. Herman was the eldest brother of my father, John Musfeldt Jr. Thanks again for providing this service for my hometown and all of us Manning "expats".

Dave, what fun to see pictures of Mom and Dad on your page. Vic and I were surprised to see that they knew each other longer than we thought. Thanks for posting these pictures and the many others you do. Always enjoy looking through the information and pictures you post. Sandy

my daughter contacted me of your Manning work. My mother was dorothy parkhouse daughter of thomas and pearl. I have a lot of grandma pearls pictures and a ledger kept during business in Manning and Traer. I will search through them. Never threw anything away.

Well, it's now 28 years since I started my first web page.
I continue to plead for old family/Manning pictures, collections, and area history to scan, but sadly most of those collections are gone now and what is left is being discarded at an alarming rate.
I just received a collection I've been trying to get to scan since 2009 and sadly the country school pictures I know once existed in that collection were thrown away.
Why so many people/families insist on just throwing away our history and not let me go through it to scan is always amazing, but I'll keep working on history as long as I'm able to do so.
