At my age I always enjoy a look back in time. Wish I were around a hundred years or so. I have a few pictures of family when I was very young and they bring back so many great memories.

Thanks for posting these.

I am a retired workaholic and continuing aquaholic.

I was intrigued, and question the true validity of the Cow Island Grist Mill being linked to the Pillsbury family ? Fact or Fiction ?

Probably related as Pillsbury founders originated in the Webster NH area with Paul Pillsbury erecting grist a mill there (within a prior built sawmill) about the same time as the one on Cow Island, but according to a clip from the Winnipesaukee.org web site: "Nancy DePorter, a real estate agent for Keller- Williams in Wolfeboro......says that it is a common misconception that Paul Pillsbury went on to found the flour company. The Pillsbury company records show that the company was founded in 1872 by Charles Alfred Pillsbury and his uncle, John Pillsbury, both of whom were born in New Hampshire; Charles in Warner in 1842 and John in Sutton, in 1827. They could very well have been related to Paul Pillsbury, who was born in Boscawen in 1798, and, after running the Cow Island property, moved to Andover, Mass., in 1843, but that is not clear."

Default Great ads--originals

Great photos! I'm working on an article about summer fairs, etc around the Lake. I'd love to give my editor high res files of a couple of these in hopes they'll get published with the article. Do you have/know where print copies are? (And, of course, would you allow their being published?) Thanks!
