Meland Video 1950’s


This film was taken on August 28, 1949 – the day after the wedding of Verna and Arny McNeal. Location: Bemidji, MN at Nils Meland’s home. Ole and Hilda Olson, our Rydland cousins, and Grandma Olson are in the film. Jimmy and I (Alrine Kenney) were visiting from California for the wedding. Jimmy was not well – had a relapse of whooping cough while we were there. I may have been the one taking the pictures.
