Ft. Leonard Wood

Elsie Bredimus with daughter, Cean

An unretouched photo of Mom and Cean I promised (interim low-resolution version).

This picture was taken by Dad (Robert L. Bredimus) during the construction of Ft. Leonard Wood MO. I believe the year was 1941.


Bob Cameron was Staff Photographer to the Neumann Construction Co. which was owned by Bob C’s Uncles from Des Moines IA. Dad was Bob C.’s photographic assistant and technical mentor at the same time. Dad did a lot of camera and darkroom work. There was plenty of dynamiting of rock involved which made some of the “photo opportunities” hazardous. Dad’s spare time camera work captured the image of the two very lovely women shown here.
