The auction was at a charming hobby farm, dispersing almost
90 years of an estate. The skies were blue, the bidders & auction
folks were amicable. I sat under a shade tree enjoying every moment.
Dave & I bid & won quite a few items. My favorite find is
the Eau Claire County Plat Map. I liked it for the vintage
graphics and the color. Little did I know that it showed the
county sectioned by farms....and there was our farm. We
guess that the map was in an Agriculture Office--and is from
the 1930s-1950s based upon the roads.
This is a keeper and brought many other bidders over to look
closer. Not a bad find for $25.00!
It found a home in our upstair's Study.
I think it was meant to come home with us!
