Rider on a 1907 Float

You cannot imagine my surprise upon opening today's Metro section [The Oregonian, January 1, 2007] and seeing the same photograph I have hanging in my home office.

Beatrice Lilly on horse-drawn float in front of the Forestry Center

In 1907, my Grandmother, Beatrice Lilly, was on that horse-drawn float in front of the Forestry Center (whose site I live very close to today).

Beatrice's daughter, Susan Grout Chilton, had the pictures reprinted for family members.

Thank you so much for a great New Year's surprise!
