Laurel Lahay for the above photo and info....

"My grandmother, Ethel Oles who was born in 1899, taught at the Long River School in Wakopa. I have some of the school records. She also worked at the Wakopa store as well as babysitting the Morgan boys who lived above the store."

This is a postcard from the Morgan Store for a special order for a pair of pants. The belief is that the pants were for Brian Arthur. Other speculation is that this is the individual that was noted as the anchor for the local tug-of-war ream that participated in an epic contest held at the opening ceremonies for the International Peace Garden.

Thanks to Hollis Morgan
