Sandy Pfunder's Photo Album
A view of my house (on the left) and my landlord's
house. The small building in between is an oven, which was heated by
building a wood fire inside it (hence the smoke coming out of it). When the
fire burned out, the ashes would be removed and corn or pears placed in the
still hot oven for several hours to dry.
When the temperature was just right, we had rain or sleet in the village but
snow on the nearby hills.
This picture, taken in late fall of 1965, shows the road that connected the
market town of Tonya to our village. The view looks South toward the
village and the higher mountains beyond it.
The landlord's house and ambar after two 50-inch snowfalls in January 1967.
In the absence of snow, you would step up two or three stairs to enter the
house through the doors shown in the picture. After the snow, you had to
step down several steps cut into the snow, in order to enter the house.
