Child's Shoes

Child's Shoe at Gammelgården Museum

These small, hand-made, black leather shoes with 3 buttons were hand- made in Sweden for Freda Christina Johnson Morrison to wear to Amerika in 1897. She was 2 years old. The family story is that she was an active, friendly child and "danced" her way to Amerika on the ship. Her family settled in Scandia, where she married and lived.

Donated by her daughter Ardyth Morrison Burke.
