Here are some pictures my mom sent of her family in 1949. LIFE magazine came to Arco, Idaho because of the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory. My mom is the littlest child in this picture. Notice the Easter baskets in the background. And I remember my grand parents always put bread on the table.
This is a picture of my Grandpa, Elmer Mackley, at his shop on Main Street in Arco. I think he was a pretty handsome guy!
