Workday Wednesday: Farming: Hard, Hot Work in the 1920's
My great grandfather, Valentine Graf, was a farmer all of his life. He farmed during a time when he and his horses did all the work. This summer I was visiting cousins and saw some photo's of Valentine and his sons farming. I had my trusty flip pal scanner with me and I went to work scanning. I am still in the process of identifying and dating the pictures. The pictures are taken on Valentine's farm in Brethren, Michigan before 1933, the date of his death. I do not know anything about farming so I won't attempt to give the names of the machines. I think you can see from the pictures what a hard worker Valentine would have had to be during this time.
Unidentified farm hands, not sure what they are doing
