    • Limberlost Cabin-Geneva-Adams County (Ind.)

    • The bird tea party-1

    • Limberlost Cabin-Geneva-Adams County (Ind.)

    • Small child on a chair

    • Limberlost Cabin-Geneva-Adams County (Ind.)
    • This photograph has created a great deal of interest. Not for the danger of tipping the chair, but because of the mounted deer head. It seems incongruous that a man who refused to allow guns on his 240 acre farm, would have a mounted head in his...

    • This pose seems to be a favorite. It is a repeat of 20092054-large. Gene had adjusted the angle of her camera-work to avoid the glare from the conservatory window on the west side of the house. Note the leather padded rocker on the left. The...
