It’s been awhile since I last posted about this… little did you know, I was not yet finished with with this house! And so, join me for a moment as we step back into the Braun House at the Pembina Thresherman’s Museum.
I hadn’t shown this painting before… I think it’s of a serrai on the right, even though the label says semlin, which is on the left:
Little side-note, in classic Mennonite fashion: Gerhard was the brother to Jakob, whom I am descended from.
Not sure if that note alludes to the Jacob/Jakob whom I’m descended from… or Gerhard’s son.
It’s possible that my great-great-great-grandfather carved this bench. It’s an interesting thought.
