Item description for Bygone Days:1907-1957 Photographs By John Penor And Family by Steven Sebring Patti Smith...
John Penor was born 1910 in Bison, South Dakota and he spent all of his life in the same sod house on his homestead where he tended to his horses and cattle. In the 1940s and 50s he photographed the world around him--horses, bison, rodeos, baseball games, town fairs, family picnics, and parades down Main Street. He put the photos in a box where they sat for 50 years, until discovered by his grand-nephew, New York-based photographer, Steven Sebring. Sebring retrieved the negatives and had the images printed--letting them breathe for the first time in half a century.

Bygone Days: 1907-1957 Feb 29, 2008
Wonderful photographs that give one some insight on what it was like to live in a small rural community in those days. Would love to be able to ask those people in the pictures more about their lives and to be able to be there to share the experiences with them - not necessarily the bronc rides, but definitely the social gatherings. Great time travel.
