1905 newlyweds entering their new home for the first time. Trees in right foreground are native American chestnut.

In our April issue, we announced an old photograph contest. We offered a prize of a $15.00 gift certificate to the Harvest Moon Natural Food Store in Floyd, Virginia to the person sending us an old photo of Native American Chestnut trees in this area.

The 1905 photograph on the front of our June issue showed a stand of chestnut trees on the right. The gift certificate goes to Mr. and Mrs. Dewey Keith, of Willis, Virginia for the photo of Mr. Keith’s parents home. Thank you, Mr. Keith, for letting us print your photograph and congratulations!
