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.
