    Taken in the garden at Vera Aul's house on Leminwah Street in Appleton, WI. The birdbath in the background was built by Arthur Radtke ("one of the only things he ever built," according to Judith Ann Radtke). Made of fieldstones and concrete, it was moved to Vera Aul's new residence in the town of Menasha, when she moved there, after marrying Walter Baurenfeind.
    House in the background belongs to the neighbors, the Heatters.
