Here is a
picture of one of the old time Sunday afternoon gatherings which were a
popular thing in our Palo Alto county 25 to 30 years ago, especially in Great
Oak township. This happy bunch had just enjoyed a sumptuous chicken dinner
prepared by Mrs. Dan Sherlock and her daughters. The picture was taken in
front of the Sherlock home near Ayrshire in the summer of 1908. Miss Josephine
Sherlock (Mrs. W. F. Egan, Emmetsburg), snapped the picture. For many years
the Sherlock home was a joyous meeting place for old and young alike.
