I enjoyed reading your post of your living in the Milwaukee area. Indeed the lake front just north of downtown Milwaukee, through the suburbs of Shorewood, Whitefish Bay and your Fox Point communities were loaded with tons of large stately homes, and in the fifties all the streets were lined with a canopy of huge elm trees. In the fifties, and sixties it was a great area to grow up in, you could take your bike any where, or if you had 15cents, jump on the bus and be safe. I was lucky to  be able to spend my high school  summers in the Minocqua / Lac du Flambeau area, back then it was pretty pristine, I hope it still is. When was a young man I ice fished Cedar lake in the West Bend , and other lakes in the  Holy Hill areas. In my early forties a great job opportunity came my way,and I moved my family south, and left the taxes, and cold behind. You had mentioned that your father had interest in iron mills in northern Wisconsin, I wasn’t aware that there were mills up there. I know that U Pee Michigan had a lot of iron mines ( as I am writing this Ironwood / Hurley area comes to mind ) is that where the mills were located? Any way thanks for sparking a few neurons of memories, and it is nice to know another ” Badger ” is on this fine site
