Aerial view of Lake View Farm

This one is captioned Mid-October 1948, Farm East of Lake View, IA. This an aerial photo of the farm that Frank and Clara Fowlie lived on. The photo is taken from the east looking west.

Their farm is no longer extant, the only thing that marks its former location is a metal grain bin. It was in the southwest quarter section of section 28 of Coon Valley Township, Sac County, Iowa. I attached a map fro Google at the bottom of this post. Looking at the recent aerial photos, the only thing there is a grain bin, the older USGS topographical images show the buildings that no longer exist.

The connection to the Brassfield surname is that Frank and Clara's daughter married Elvis J. Brassfield.
