This is my Grandmother and Grandfather with their family. One of those boys is my father. Bit confusing as they had 8 sons (1Daughter the eldest. One died quiet young and I'm not sure if he is in the photo another one died in his twenties and was one of the eldest so Im sure he's here. I think my father is one of the boys standing directly in front of their parents. After 6 kids they decided to have seperate rooms. That obviously didn't work.
It is a very unusual photo as it has my Grandmother in it. She was a very keen photographer who took lots of photos in an era when photography was an expensive hobby.
They had a dairy farm which my youngest uncle still has. The older boys used to get out of bed at 4:30, milk the cows (no machines in those days), have a cooked breakfast, go to school, come home, eat whatever had been cooked for lunch (plated and put in the meat safe), milk the cows, do their homework, eat cold meat and vegies for the evening meal, go to bed. Yes nothing like the good old days.
