Image 1. 1932 - Thomson Moodie Cottage. For their first few summers, the Thomsons rented different cottages at Sesekinika. On their third summer, the family rented, then purchased this cottage at their present loaction on A-1 Island. Over the years, my grandfather (Udy Thomson) added and enlarged it to the size it is today.

Image 3. 1934 - Bud Thomson (Mary Celia Thomson Moodie's brother) - age 14. One of Bud's summer jobs was delivering blocks of ice (cut from the lake in winter and stored in sawdust in Ollie's ice hut behind the General Store) to customers around the lake. Although American, Bud flew in the RAF in World War II. He and his wife, Kathleen, stayed in St. Louis, but loved to visit Sesekinika over the years.
