Harry Johnson was born in Wisconsin in 1914, met Alice May Thompson when his threshing crew cleared her family's Ellsworth farm around 1930. They married during the great depression, but Harry's superior mechanical skill and general reliability kept him gainfully employed. They moved into a house in New Richmond, Wisconsin, around 1949 (150 Green Avenue N, where I live today). There they raised their two children, Linda and Tom Johnson.

Approaching retirement, Harry learned he had slowly progressive emphysema. He and Alice took to a program of travel, going to Europe several times and visiting every state in the USA.

Harry like taking photos, and shot slide film with an SLR. I sorted through his collection, and (with my Grandmother's permission) share some here. My favorites are those that capture rural Wisconsin family life in the 1950s.

(Harry passed away in 1998 due to complications from emphysema. He is buried in Belvedere, Minnesota)
