Joe Lawton, author and historian, and his family, have a long history in the Palmer area. He has provided the Museum with a number of documents including identification of the photo in his collection. Though our Lawton photo collection is small at this time, we look forward to adding additional images from him in the future.
Matanuska Maid Display
Image is of a young woman in a fur parka, identified as Lillian Loberg, sitting amongst a number of vegetable and "Matanuska Maid" product cartons arranged for display. Location appears to be in a tent, possibly at the Matanuska Valley Fair.
