Winter 1989 Card

This family picture has an unusual origin. Michelle (5 years old at the time) had a strong interest in factories and how things were made. We were having a hard time finding local factories that were open to visits, so we wrote to the business editor of the local newspaper, hoping they could help. They weren't able to help much, but they found the idea of a 5-year-old fascinated by factories so interesting that they published a story on Michelle, including this photograph, which was taken by their photographer.
