I'm trying to reach Kevin Berner, who I think is living in Houghton or Hancock. I want to know if his mother, Verna, has an e-mail address. I think she now lives in Arizona. If you can give me Kevin's or Verna's e-mail address, I would appreciate it. It has to do with muscrat skinning.

Do some of you remember the Street Cars? When I was only a few days old, my father took me for a ride on one of the Cars that he was a conductor on.
How many of you remember Electric Park? I was pretty young when I went there once but, I do remember the Slide and thought it was a mile high, of course it wasn't. The station where you could buy pop and candy was on the edge of the Street Car tracks. All of the pop caps were tossed across the tracks at the end of each day and I think there is a pile of popcap tin on the opposite side of the old tracks even today.

The traction Company that operated the Street Car line, built Electric Park for the people of the Copper Country who used to enjoy picnics at the park whenever they could find time, especially after church on Sundays.

These were good times, with hard work, long hours and you still needed a #9 shovel to handle the Copper Country weather in the winter.

Thank you so much for the information on the photographers. I knew there were some beautiful pictures on your pages, and I knew they were definitely professional quality. But I had no idea they were PROFESSIONAL...WOW! What great and talented people you have contributing to your site.

And thank you for copyright info. I looked in the questions area of the site, but was probably more interested in the Pasty info to notice what I'd gone there for. :)

I'm SO glad I found your site. And when I post a photo or two on site, I'll certainly add a link to Pasty-dot-com! I think every artist should see how the Yoopers live. You are very special people.

Hello to all at PASTY-dot-com.
You have a great site...wonderful people and fantastic photos. It was through searching the internet for barn photos that I found your site. I think I'll be hanging around for a while.

P.S. How can I get in touch with the photographers for permission to use some of their pictures?

With memories of summers on the Upper Penninsula,
I spent a long time looking at ALL of the pictures.
Saved a lot for wallpaper, too.

Years ago, as a boy I visited a natural wonder called "The Devil's Washtub" near either Eagle Harbor or Copper Harbor. I have driven by on the highway many times since, but haven't been able to locate it again. Does anyone have information on it or possibly a picture to put on this web-site? I fear that this curious spot is on private land and now is not open to the public, but if not, I'd like to visit it again.

Thanks to all the good folks in the Minneapolis area who have called and ordered pasties. One of the downtown restaurants will be putting them on the menu. We are thrilled and hope they become a permanent item. We will be at the Horse Expo the end of April at the Minnesota State Fair. See you there.
