I recently purchased a large collection of photos from an estate sale in St. Johns, Michigan. No, I don't know who owned the items before I purchased them. I have been asked that question a lot lately. I always pay with cash which means I never get a receipt or make a check out to a particular family member. And, I cannot bring myself to ask, who or why the person is selling off all of the possessions. I vision myself asking someone who ends up being a family member and the person breaks down crying right there. I would rather just research the information.
Anyways, back to this particular photo which is of an older house. I actually think I know where this is located. I am planning to take a little road adventure when my schedule will allow it. The back of the photo has the words "Lucy Masins House" written in pencil.
