PORTRAITS, April, 1927

And so it was that in the absence of their parents, the "children" became all "growed up," and promising specimens at that.

Here's Seth, readdy for a game. Softball? My father's caption is "Sportsman."

Caption here is "Wind Blown Bob" but we know her name is really May, which it is.

After a winter of rain rather than snow and after making a grand tour of all the relatives which was probably bankrolled by the estate of Archibald Strachan, Sam's father, who had died in Minneapolis in 1926, the Ranger returns. Sam and Beulah had visited South Dakota, Oklahoma, California, and on up to Victoria, returning to Portland until Spring. Photos document relatives living both hardscrabble and in mansions, spread out by choices and luck. (See "Strachans on the Prairie," available at http://www.lulu.com/prairiemary.)
