Tonight we’d like to feature just a few of the wonderful vintage photos, posted by our readers, that show a bit of country life in days gone by. We hope you enjoy them and that they bring up memories of old family stories.
from Peggy VanAntwerp: “My husband’s Great – grandfather’s barn raising in Memphis, Michigan. Love the guys in the rafters and all the children too.”
We were tempted to try to count the number of people in this amazing photo, but gave up. It’s such a remarkable thing to see! Thank you so much, Peggy, for sharing it with us all at Dusty.
And we love Jeannine’s photo! It is just so very remarkable. Notice, too, not only the girl and boy in the wagon, but also the goat!
It’s always amazing to still see old country stores like this one, usually at forgotten crossroads. Notice the bread advertisements on the screen door.
Besides seeing Ron’s Dad’s car in this photo, the view of the large house and the small barn or shed behind is gives such a feel for life in the country, or in small towns so long ago.
Thanks to Ron, Enjoying The View, Jeannine, Peggy and everyone else for sharing their precious photographic memories with us.
