1910 Farm Scene

This distinguished gentleman is my great-grandfather, Charles Lyman Whalen, taken on the Minich family farm in Carlisle, IN circa 1910.  I love the textures in this photo, especially the sheep's curly locks and the ruggedness of the barn boards.  "Pete" always dressed up, even when on the farm.

What a wonderful image!!! I hope to get all my vintage photos scanned and preserved in something other than the tin boxes they are in now! Thanks for sharing!!
