Blast from the Past / 1942: A couple of cousins in Gifford

A couple of cute kids were caught on camera in this photo taken on July 3, 1942, in Gifford. First cousins Jewel (Lincoln) Steigers, 4, and Bob Finnell, 2, had their straw hats on to ward off the July sunshine. Finnell, who turns 79 this month, lives along the Clearwater River at Arrow, and Steigers, who submitted this photo, lives in Culdesac.
