Stories of Earl Brinkman by Robert J. Brinkman - Upper Peninsula to Pierce St
Upper Peninsula to Pierce St
Grandpa Brinkman and most of the boys either worked in the Copper mines or lumber camps. When the mines started to close Grandpa Brinkman went down to Milwaukee to find work. He sent money home to his wife on a regular basis. He eventually brought everyone down to Pierce Street to a little two story house with wooden floors and a long table in the kitchen. There was a bathroom right off the kitchen where I used to hide from his playing the violin. He was probably pretty good but at three or whatever I was at the time, I didn’t appreciate the music.
