Down on the farm.

By HobbitDave
Another photo which has been restored in iPad Photo Editor.
One from 1925. Believed to be the farm owner, and two farm managers with flat-caps. Possibly in Kent but location not known.
Interesting bit of social history from 95 years ago.
The car on the left is a 1925 Austin 7 Chummy tourer, very debonaire little car which no doubt suited the farm owner.
Pencil-dated 1925 on the back.
The days when 30mph was very fast, and driving with the hood down and fresh air all around you was a given on sunny days! 🙂

Hope you like this. A diversion from the strange times we are going through 🦋

I think you could be right, Ian, the Great 1925 Milk Churn Race. That was a legend for farmers. Someone actually drove at just over 35mph. Very scary! 🙂🙂

Love these old images, Dave, a great series.
It's amazing how new the fence in the background looks, that's something that hasn't changed much. Smile

They were proud of their cars in them days. Most folk do not bother washing there's now. They took pride polishing all the chrome bits and all. Lovely old photo Dave. Debs

A wonderful look back in time - the boys look very smart even down on the farm.
