Sharing the Front Page with the President! (not a recent photo)

Dad and Me and Ike 08-07-1957

Here I am with my Dad sharing the Front Page of a Major Newspaper with the President of the United States, Dwight D. "Ike" Eisehower!

Okay, some people might not consider The Brainerd Daily Dispatch to be a "major" newspaper - but they're just snobs :-)

And some might point out that the two articles have absolutely nothing to do with each other. But I like it :-)

The Brainerd Daily Dispatch
Brainerd, Minnesota, Wednesday, August 7, 1957

Pure Cold Deep Well Water.

ONE FOR THE ROAD - Brainerd's cold, pure well water is looked forward to by many thirsty
travelers from the Mid-Central states who stop here on their way to the resorts and lakes. Many
of them fill thermos bottles and jugs with water from a spiggot inside the Chamber of Commerce
building here. Two travelers from Minneapolis, Ben F. Swezey and his son Tom, are pictured here.
Hundreds of visitors stop at the Chamber information bureau every week.
