Vintage Photos of the Pember

Here’s a couple photos of the Pember Library and Museum. The black and white is dated 1910 and the color is from a postcard with a postal date of 2 Apr 1915.

Beaver Lodge

One thing I love about taking photos is comparing them years down the road. That’s how we determine growth or lack there of. Right now, while the leaves are gone from the trees, you can see amazing things like the homes of animals. One animal’s home in particular is the Hebron Nature Preserve’s resident beaver. By the photo posted you can see the growth of his home in just two years. Not to mention the increase of water in the creek no doubt from his dam. How awesome!
