Nostalgia: Farming Life

We have many beautiful images of farming life through the years in the collection at MOLLI. Many of these images were kindly donated by members of the public. These 9 images are just one example of the intriguing images that are sent to us. These pictures show farming with horse-drawn machinery at Howestone. The photographs were taken in the summers between 1947 and the early 1950s and show essential work being undertaken in a traditional way, as well as the farm’s faithful horse Dobbin. They give a wonderful insight into farming at this time and the importance of the horse before the tractor became as prevalent as it is today.
