Glen Carbon in Madison County, Illinois — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Village Winter Scene
Ronald J. Foster Heritage Trail
The photograph of the village may have been taken by Mr. Anton Daenzer, Mine Superintendent, as he surveyed the view of the valley below his home on the hill. The neighborhood was so serene and quiet after a fresh blanket of snow, perhaps it was an early Sunday morning before the hustle and bustle of living began.
