I took these pictures for a GREAT lady..this is where she lived for part of her life....she explains the story below:<br />
<br />
When I looked at these pictures, that place was a huge part of my life, the bulk tank, I poured many pails of milk into it and the trough in their used to be filled with cold water, before the bulk tank I was 12 years old and I had to lift large Milk cans full of milk into that tank.  ....I used to have to get up at 5:00 am and help my dad milk 40 cows in those old stanchions. Then I would come home from school, put the milking machines together and help do the night milking.  Mom and Dad had 7 of us, and we all lived in that tiny little house.  Dad built the porch on to  it and closed up the entrance of the house and made a bedroom with bunk beds.  The old corrals are still their and the loading chute.  Dad made silage at the back of the barn.  Dad  did all the work and Jack Bancroft split the monthly cheque with Dad, it was a partnership.You stirred my memories.  Again, I thank you so much for these  photos. They mean a lot to me.  It was a beautiful day.  Had you ever been out that way before?.  I once saw a Bob Cat in a tree by the road on Gordon's property.  I am also surprised that old retaining wall is still there.  It is so funny how things like the house look so tiny now.  I like them all, I do not mind paying you for them Duane. I appreciate you making a special trip to take them.<br />
