  1. 4th of July? 24th of July? And what’s pulling the covered wagons?

  2. 24th of July.

    Those are little models that the kids made in Primary — the oxen pulling wagons are paper/cardboard cutouts, the kind of thing where two identical drawings are joined at the dotted-line spine, then folded to make a model that will stand on its own. I think I’ve got the pattern somewhere. Will try to find it and post before it becomes irrelevant for another year.

  3. Thanks, Ardis. Now for another put-you-on-the-spot question: the building/buildings in the background?

  5. The three visible houses look like standard new-home construction from the early 1900s. Feature by feature they match the 1910 Sears homes (see here). Now as to the location, I can’t say. I’m a bit familiar with Sugarhouse but without recognizing the actual homes or triangulating the location based on the view of the mountains, or going through street by street to find the homes on Google Streetview, it would be hard to pinpoint the location.
