A surprise discovery at the Carter House Museum in Elkader gives a unique insight into small town life in the 1920s.  A forgotten collection of glass plate photos was found in a cabinet in the museum. The photos show the interiors of local stores and the people who owned them, as well as the customers that frequented them, something that was rather rare for the era.

Life sometimes takes strange turns. Take Nin Glawe’s life, for instance.

Nin was always interested in art. In high school at MFL, Monona, she took lots of art classes. After high school, she attended Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo to study commercial art. She had visions of moving to Seattle and finding a job using her talent in some form. Maybe graphic arts.
