1943-1946 Album of Pete and Peg Weaver - First and only purchased home in Faribault - Lake Mazaska Fishing- With Dave & Claudia Horning








 The limestone home was purchased in the summer of 1943.  Here is the front of the house at 425 SW 3rd St in Faribault in the winter of 1943-44. 


 1944 Living Room Fireplace with small maple table that is still with the St Cloud Weaver family, at Jesse and Amy's home.  Used for many projects over the years. Writing stamp collecting. Note 78 rpm record collection to the left, and magazine rack I remember having Saturday Evening Posts in it.
 1944 Living room with floral couch covering, Johnston Hall Seabury Campus Library, 3 glassed door bookcase, now returned to the Guild House by the Cathedral in Faribault, after a tour to Duluth and St Cloud with the Tom Weaver family. 
 1944 Weaver home living room looking north out the big window. Weber Baby Grand Piano, drop leaf walnut table in front by couch.  Far corner had a short wave radio that I would listen to Chicago radio stations and well as KDHL um pah music for milking cows in the morning. And WCCO with Maynard Speece for the livestock reports.   In the hayday of Radio prior to TV :-)
1944-45 Peg and Pete Weaver at dock, Lake Mazaska, with Minnows sign.  Goin' fishin" ? In a rowboat.  No noisy motors :-)
