I think it is kind of funny that they had what appears to me to be a "professional studio photo" taken with them wearing winter coats. But now that I wrote that, I think my mom had a photo of either me or my sister or both of us in a winter coat! In any case, they make a cute couple.

I wonder what she would have thought about the TV show and how she still has so many fans even today. I hope she would have been pleased, even though the show does stray quite a bit from the books.

Haven't seen any of those. Thanks Rhonda. I particularly like the one of her standing by the water.

There are great LIW pics, Hunen. Do you have some book about Laura's life? There, you'll find some wonderful pics of her. If you don't have them, we must scan them for you.

Vanesa. Smile

I think I may have seen the first picture in a book before. The second one I haven't seen. The third I have seen before in a book as well. The first picture reminds me of the house where Laura stayed with the older woman when she got her first teaching job and Almanzo would come and pick her up in Season 6 of LHOTP.

The first one and the third are in a several books, but I have them in Laura's biography, written by William T. Anderson.

I'd never seen the second one, tough.

I have a book with all of these in it. SO glad they bothered with pictures back then...or we wouldn't have them. Do you all remember the first photo you ever saw of Laura? I do, I was 19 and had picked up a small book in Branson, MO about Laura's family. It was the photo of her at 18. I was so glad she really did look as I had pictured her. I think she was the prettest of the Ingalls girls.

Thumbsup Most of us have seen the photos shown on this website, but for those that haven't, check it out.  There was one of Laura and Almanzo that I had not seen, and maybe the same for you as well.  This site is really neat with all kinds of old photos and information from the past.  ENJOY!

I had seen them all. I remember the first time I saw a photo of Laura and I thought how pretty she was. My only wish is to see in color her blue eyes.

PostSubject: Rare photos   Sat Apr 01, 2017 9:58 pm

Here's a little bit from the link that I'll post...Some of us/you may have seen all of these already, but I thought I'd post it anyway because *I* hadn't seen some of this. Here's the link the all of the pics:



Little House Pics

And here are a few of the pics along with the descriptions from that site:



This photo of the young couple in Florida around 1892 says so much:  they were uncomfortable and out of sorts.  They had hoped the warmer climate would be better for Almanzo's health, but ultimately they couldn't deal with the humidity, nor did they find it easy to fit in with the others living in the area.  This was when they decided they needed to "go home"; they were tired of all the struggle.

After a short time back in De Smet, the family made way to Mansfield, Missouri by covered wagon in 1894.  Almanzo put a $100 down payment to buy 40 acres of hilly, rocky land that Laura would ultimately name "Rocky Ridge Farm".  As part of the deal for the land, Almanzo negotiated the inclusion of 400 small apple trees that would come ready-to-plant.  This one deal would set the path for their next sixty years -- and what an adventure it would be.





Almanzo thought through everything.  He knew he was getting a deal for the land, but knew it would be difficult to clear and plant.  This photo shows Almanzo and Perley Wilder surveying the terrain above the Spring Gulch on the farm.  In the early days of the farm, they used mules for almost everything.



Though the young couple had certainly bought the land at a great price, they had MUCH work to do to prepare it for farming.  It was covered with high brush, trees, and scattered with rocks.  As such, during the winter of 1894/1895, Laura and Almanzo spent nearly every day working to clear brush, cut down trees, and remove rocks.  Just think of it:  Laura on one end of a big cross-cut saw, Almanzo on the other, pulling back and forth in the dead of winter.  

Thankfully, by the spring of 1895, they had cleared enough land to plant the 400 apple trees and even a plot of corn.  They made ends meet day-to-day as Almanzo sold firewood in town and Laura set up a business of selling eggs from the farm chickens.  

Almanzo's parents also chipped in by renting a home in Mansfield and then buying and ultimately giving their son the deed. They would live in this small house until 1910, when they would move to Rocky Ridge farm full time.  




Laura outside their rented home in Mansfield in 1898.  You can almost see the excitement on her face as things started to "come together".

In 1896, Almanzo chose a site on the farm for their future home.  Using wood from the trees they had cleared, he got to work and built an initial cabin room and then a side room and loft for their daughter, Rose.  Though this initial build of the home was meager, they were able to rent it to local workers.  In town, the couple picked up a variety of odd jobs to bring in a little money:  Almanzo would haul merchandise to stores and Laura would cook meals for the local railroad workers and families heading west.  Their day-to-day life thus involved long days in town with occasional trips out to the farm to keep an eye on the growing orchard, gather eggs, and pull together more firewood for sale.




This view from around 1900 shows the expanse of Rocky Ridge farm, most of it now cleared, with various areas cordoned off for future orchards and gardens.  



Laura Ingalls Wilder in the ravine at Rocky Ridge Farm in 1900 at the age of 33.  This was the year before the apple trees started bearing fruit.  The land was blessed with a spring and a small stream that ran out from it, seen here in this photo.  This photo shows how young she looked, even at 33, despite everything she had already been through.





This photo says so much.  In 1901, those seedlings they had planted in 1895 began to bear fruit.  Here we see Almanzo showing off one of his trees, filled with fruit.  You can almost feel the "hallelujah" element they must have felt!

Those years were good to the Wilders, and Laura and Almanzo ultimately designed a ten-room house for the farm, as they knew they would live no where else for the remainder of their years.  It would have a large stone fireplace, library, an open stairway, and enough space for guests and hosting small gatherings.  It would also be set up so they could always keep an eye on the land they loved so much.
