Update to the Charles Lindbergh Story — Larry Clark

Linda,

I wanted to post this in your Lindbergh story but couldn’t see how to attach this photo. It was found amongst Beth’s grandfather’s photos but don’t know how he would have obtained it. I am almost certain that it is Lindbergh, probably taken on his trip to Alaska and the Orient.

I would think this was his stopover in Baker Lake. A few years ago, I tried to get in contact with the Lindbergh museum but they were closed at the time-I intend to try again as I would like to ascertain whether or not the photo is a one off or a stock photo. The aviatrix  beside him would be Ann Morrow, his wife. Thought you might be interested-feel free to post it to your story.Larry

Read– Tales You Did Not Know About—Charles Lindbergh Landed in Carleton Place

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.

  1. Beth’s grandfather Will Slade served in WW1 but was prevented from going overseas by the actions of his wife (who was quite a force-during her career as a poet/writer she wrote to almost every head of state including the queen (princess) and many prominent politicians as she wrote limericks and poetry and used this medium to promote her works) so he served with a railroad/forestry company in Canada. Had a career working for the Federal Government and eventually as a commissionaire, died in Ottawa at the age of 95.
