    The original barn that unfortunately burned down in 1995.

    My great grandmother & grandfather with one of my great aunts. They bought the farm in 1922, pictures from around 1965?

    One of the coal mine that my great grandfather mined coal from, he bought the farm so he could mine. It was my grandpa who really started working the farm because he didn't want to mine anymore. They mined to the property line and then connected shafts with a larger coal company, so my grandpa would tell me about walking under the farm and out the other side of the hill.
    This was right before they pushed it shut., it was abandoned for years.


    OSHA approved!

    Thanks for sharing these. Even though people worked harder back then, times sure looked a lot simpler in the old days.

    Cheese n crackers it's dry here. Could barely drive a t post into the ground with the hand driver. Pulled a couple step in fiberglass posts out to straighten up the hot wire and couldn't hardly step them back in.

    It's bone dry here as well, but hopefully the rain will hold off here for maybe another week. We'll be thru with peanuts by then.

    This is the best I can do, A picture taken from a airplane back in 1974 of the old house, barn, and farm road. We had to buy the pictures back then, as they took the pics. then came buy to see if you wanted to buy a pic. of your farm house.

    edit, take note, there is 6 sows, and one boar in the pic. I do miss them days!

    Yes, and if baling clover, you do not want to be on the twine side.

    iv'e see a few of those or similar come up in auction ads over the last year or so. i never saw one in person though. most were coming out of tractor collections. i'm only about 35-40 miles from New Holland PA where they were made.
