Farm Buildings and Moving


Farm Buildings and Moving


View of a log house with a sod roof and a rock chimney. The house is a one-story rectangular structure and has a lean-to built onto the house perpendicular to one end. On the opposite end of the house is a cellar entrance below a window. A copper boiler and a bath tub are lying on the ground near the house. On the front of the house is a door with a stoop and two windows. There is what appears to be a bushel basket with a tin pail on top of it next to the door. Beneath one of the windows is a hand-cranked grain mill on a stand. There is a buggy parked in front of the house as well. There is a clothesline to the right of the house, with sheets or blankets hanging on it and blowing in the wind. There is a woman in the foreground walking toward the camera. She is wearing a long skirt with an apron, a long-sleeved white blouse with a necktie, and she has her hair up. She is carrying a tin cup in her right hand. There is another woman behind the first. She is wearing a long dress and apron, but her face and most of her body is obscured by the first woman. Near the house is a small boy dressed in a dark jacket, pants and cap. There are many chickens around the house in the yard. To the left of the house is a large pile of split firewood. Beyond the wood pile, the Badlands can be seen in the distance. Exact date and location unknown. Not identified.
