Photo Number 1647

These are photos from a garage sale in Park Rapids Minnesota.  I think they were probably taken in the 1940’s or early 1950’s.

Photo Number 1645

This is an old snapshot from the Tin Ceiling a Antique Shop in Park Rapids Minnesota.

Man with a bull Tin Ceiling

A man and his bull in front of a haystack..  The bull was the  foundation of his herd of cattle.

The bulls all had nose rings, I remember feeling sorry for ours.  He was very gentle and I used to pet him all the time.  One day I wandered into the pasture and was petting his leg, it caused a bit of excitement…I was saved by one of the neighbor boys…of course I was certain I was in no danger.

It would be nice if someone would recognize this old snapshot…I would love to have a photo of my grandfather with one of his bulls.

Thanks for stopping by.

Three work horses and maybe a mule.

Most farmers took really good care of their horses and they were real proud of their teams.
