19th Century Farming Life Revealed

by rogerco on Wed 19th Jan 2022.

Quite interesting,some gems of information, but also at times seems a bit padded and filled out with additional research rather than just the voices of those remembering. It would have been to get a bit more verbatim speech from the old folk. The contexts provided by the author are probably pretty essential though.
