    My Maternal Grandparents, on their way out to do the milking on a Sunday afternoon.
    Most likely there was a chicken in the wood stove roasting for a family gathering.
    Circa 1960

    I've added three more photo's, the first is what I started with, stained & creased.
    Second photo & third are my restoration work.
    Third photo is a coloured version by our resident photo artist Phil.
