In old Pleasant Hill where I reside, there are numerous old portraits and what we commonly called where I grew up, “enlarged pictures.” These range from the unknown to a painting of Capt. J.H. Wood (builder of the house) to Carl Sandburg to Jenny Lind and Judah P. Benjamin, and there are others.

Some are stored behind doors and under beds and wherever a picture can be stored away. I like pictures of people because my greatest love in life are my fellow travelers here on this journey and thus I take pleasure in having these pictures here.
