Heritage Photos: Trades and Professions: Farming: January 15, 2013

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Over the past few months, we have searched out heritage photos that depict where and how our ancestors lived.  Now we are going to use heritage photos to try to get a sense of the trades and professions our ancestors would likely have been involved in. 

Our photo collection this week is all about Farming. Chances are you have at least one, if not several, farmers in your family tree. 

Our first photo is from Wales:
