In these candid photos, taken on Easter Day in 1942, the Custer children posed in the backyard in their Sunday finest. Of course, no picture was complete without their beloved dog Taffy. She appeared in many other photos as well. The contemporary photo shows the home on an unusually warm winter morning in 2013. Note the classic knee braces along the roofline. More photos will be coming from this interesting family.
