Far Guys Paternal Grandparents were farmers. They began farming on this farm in 1916( I think..I hope I have that year correct.)
I am not sure what year this aerial photo was taken. I found this photo in one of the albums that I scanned last winter. It was either spring or fall when this photo was taken. The trees along the drive were small..they were either Elms or Ash and I remember them as large trees that were taken down one by one.
Far Guy said “Where is the outhouse?”
Barn, pigpen, machine shed, chicken coop with the white trim and the outhouse(little tiny white building) and a garage.
If the outhouse had been moved from it’s spot behind the house then the claw foot bath tub and the stool and sink must have been working! Grandma had a window in her bathroom, you could sit on the stool and look out the window.
Look at the big garden space out behind the house. Grandma grew enough vegetables for everyone in the family. When you stepped outside the back step in the spring air the smell of lily of the valley and then lilacs would greet you. Later in June the Lady Slippers would be blooming next to that step.
Lots of good memories tied up in this place. Boys left for school, work and war from this home. They brought back their wives and children, who it turn brought their children. We can still go over to the farm and visit. It is still in the family Far Guy’s Uncle lives there:)
