1960--my Mother, sister and I were visiting her brother (my uncle), who had a home on the shore of Lake Huron.
One day we took a road trip to various places of interest in the area and then to the top of the hill with the Au Sable river lying far below.
My Mother spotted it and said, "Judy! You need that. Help me drag it up here."
So down we ran and hauled that heavy thing up the steep hill to the car. Thanks goodness, back then, cars had larger, deeper trunks.
When we got it home, she put some heavy eye bolts on the back of it and hung it over our couch. It has hung over every couch I have had, in every house I have had, until I moved here.
Now, it hangs over my den window, ready to come crashing down on my computer/monitor/desk at any moment.
It is one of my most prized possessions. (and at the time, very dusty). LOL
