Manikin
(54 items)

This great photo was captured of my uncle on the family farm. It would date around 1940's very early 50's
The Hay Rake and our work horses Hans and Lady :-) I love the photo and hoe you will also . A farmer deep in thought while working toward sunset time . I have wrote on photo because often my posts show up on other sites without my permission so please excuse writing .

    Fantastic photo Mani! The composition is really artistic, I’m sure Phil will agree :-)
    Always great to have such family memories, and even knowing the horses name!

    Good morning kyratango and thank you :-) I was lucky that my grandmother gave me her photo's and also fortunate that she always told stories about family . She was always my inspiration . Hope your weather in France is warmer than here in Wi we have been around 2 degree's for many days now :-( Can't wait till summer ! xo

    Ha, evening here 6PM! Not cold weather, but we had storms, and rain all over... Mud everywhere :-(
    Stay safe and warm, xo

    Great nostalgic family photo Mani, nice atmospheric shot - good that you put protective wording on it as the 'net steals everything. By the way it's 7 degrees post-blizzard in NY today so I can relate

    Is this the whole photo ?? I love it either way !~

    Great photo! Must bring back lots of memories! And for Phil, probably not the whole photo, she wanted the photo thief to only have a horses ass!!! hahaha

    Easy to get lost in time looking at such a beautiful old photograph. Thanks for sharing it Manikin!
  8. Manikin Manikin, 9 months ago

    Appears to be an old dump rake for gathering up loose hay on the farm. My father had an old one that he converted to be pulled by an old John Deere "B".
    Nice photo :)

  11. Manikin Manikin, 9 months ago

    Oh, this is really great!! Working a farm back in those days must have been incredibly hard compared to the present day. Amazing how farm machinery has advanced.

    manikin did they close any of the boston stores down in Milwaukee by you at all?
  17. SEAN68 SEAN68, 6 months ago
    the reason why I say this is because they are closing younkers up here in Appleton and they are selling all of the mannequins here at my store and theres a whole bunch for sale still.
  18. Manikin Manikin, 6 months ago
    Yes closing Boston stores here too Sean . I don't collect life size ones but would have been wonderful to find a counter top one. I used to shop there all the time years ago but actually there are stores closer now to me . It was a great store to shop at but the internet has taken down many great stores where you could actually touch and see item in person :-(
  19. Manikin Manikin, 6 months ago
    Are any of the mannequins they are selling ones that sit on counter Sean ?
  20. SEAN68 SEAN68, 6 months ago
    hello manikin from what known , there could be or maybe 2 , I will double check.

    that's too bad they are closing down by you as well.
  21. Manikin Manikin, 6 months ago
    If you see any let me know ok Sean and take a photo too .
  22. MALKEY MALKEY, 6 months ago

    thank you for sharing your ever so precious image manikin !!!!!!!!
  23. Manikin Manikin, 6 months ago
    Thank you for the kind words MALKEY much appreciated :-)
  24. SEAN68 SEAN68, 6 months ago
