This book is dedicated to the memory of my father-in-law, Rollie Wegener, whose support and generosity made this dream a reality.

To my wife Joan, whose help and patience in going through boxes of negatives, and in sorting, selecting, and labeling those pictures to be printed, were invaluable.  To our children, Norine, Ken, Russ, Holly, John, Kim and Rob. This book is your window to the past. May you always be reminded of the times and activities of your heritage.

Cedarburg is my hometown. I have lived here all my life. I am thankful that I had the foresight to keep the thousands of negatives that made this publication possible. There have been many changes in the appearance of Cedarburg since 1946 when I first started taking pictures. I hope that all who see this book enjoy taking the trip back in time.
