Dave Howard about 200 yards north of the Catholic Cathedral with Rezekne River behind him, in the distance the old ruins can be seen.

Rezekne homes have "barns" in the back for livestock and other storage. They might also have a bathhouse (sauna) and 100 years ago a latrine.


North on Latgale street past Catholic Cathedral. Barona street ahead on the right.

Rezekne scene

Power pole in Rezekne. The part in the ground is concrete. They strap on the wood pole. The ground is so moist this keeps the pole from rotting.

Wood house, dirt road, old neighborhood where our family lived.

Rezekne River closer to the end of Barona Street. My guess this is close to where Florence fell in and Bessie had to give up her dry cloths.

My guide Alex near the Rezekne River.
