Brett Hart Cabin_5x5_8 Aug 15 _ S F I

My father made this photo on one of his trips out west to visit his sister in the 1940’s and 50’s.  I Googled “Bret Harte” a while back and I think I remember it saying that he was a writer out in California.  Here is a link to his Wikipedia site and I was correct about him being a writer.  I have seen this old photo for fifty years and never really thought much about it, but I  scanned the print and decided to post it just because I had it ready.  The only significance to me is that this is my 400th post on this blog.  I would guess that I have over 600 photos posted and it could be more since many posts have more than two images and a few have over ten.  When I started I had only planned to put up one image per post, then I started finding more and more images that were related.  In an effort to streamline my posts, I just thought that it would be easier to include all of the images that were related.  My only real goal out of this blog was to just share all of these images that I came across as I sorted through the thousands that I had of my father’s.   At some point in time in the future, I am going to try and put together a book of a lot of these image and see what type of response I get.  But that is for another time … Thanks for looking and if anyone has been to see Bret Harte’s cabin, let us hear from you.  For all I know it might have fallen down or it might have gotten burned up in all of the fires that they are having all over the state of California.  And if anyone has read any of Mr. Harte’s books, let us know what you think.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank
