"Slab City" (yes! it's a real place!) is located just south of
Bonduel about 1 mile on Old Hwy 47. On the top of the hill was Frieden's
Ev. Lutheran Church but only the cemetery remains there now. Down the hill
to the south were the local "refreshment establishments" and that's where the
pictures were taken. Slab City had nothing to do with Morgues (until the
1970's!) -- it was named because of the sawmills in the valley and the piles of
slabs of wood.
This 2nd photo was sent in by a researcher from the area... seems
to be the same tavern, the same day, with some of the same people...
