Recently, we visited Guido Pfister, Christopher Latham Sholes and the former site of The Norman, on Wisconsin Ave. in Downtown Milwaukee, where four people died in a 1991 fire that consumed the iconic apartment building in minutes.
Much like our Ofrenda, we paid homage to these people and places that impacted Milwaukee, lighting a candle for the dead at the former site of the Norman, bringing flowers and saying a few words at the Pfister family plot. Molly is posting about honoring the memory of Guido to the Pfister narrator's blog.
We often visit Christopher Latham Sholes, sometimes with custard-carrying kids, but this time we brought our new Royal Mercury portable typer. Molly typed out a note to Christopher and we left flowers for our typewriter inventing friend.
The accompanying photo gallery documents some of our day visiting the dead. (Clicking on a thumbnail will generate a larger image and the gallery can be scrolled through.)
