Though the farmlands and buildings look rather poor, the farmers must have had some money, as they had a pickup truck, and this elegant looking car on the premises.

The man and his pooch look content at what may have been the end of a long day in the fields.

That's a pretty strong and docile animal carrying all of those people!

Farming certainly was different in those days.

    They knew how to have fun with what they had!
    That looks like a tough place to make a living farming.

    Yes, walk softly, they certainly made the best of it! It would be interesting to have been able to meet with such souls. Well, in the Next Life it can accomplished!

    With all of those rocks, they must have been growing potatoes. And maybe the trees indicate that some of their work may have been in logging....

    Maybe they just grew rocks!
    As kid's growing up on the farm we knew that every time Dad went out & worked up the fields that we would have to go out & pick a new batch of rocks.

    I hated picking rocks as a kid as it was all done by hand, funny part is that I have lots of memories of working with my Dad, Grandfather & siblings. Those days of manual labor & hard work formed the strongest memories & they're good memories. I think it's because you shared it with your family, & there were special memories like hot meals in the field at haying or harvest. These were always prepared by my mother & delivered hot to the field.
