This is my father, TK Britt, burning the pond bank, painted from my 1989 pencil sketch.   The pond was built by my father, grandfather, uncles, and others, and became a busy community gathering place for folks of all ages, on Sunday afternoons from around 1954 until about 1970.  The bream fishing was very dependable.
