Here are three more photos from cousin Carol, grouped in this post because all are glimpses of farming in Fitch Coulee – maybe around 1940. Enjoy them.
In this photo of farmers and horses taken at the Flikkeshaug farm, our grandfather Emil Borreson is the third man from the left.
This threshing scene includes a good glimpse of grandmother Gina on the left, Ednar (Red) pouring coffee, and uncle Bennie in the front and turned toward the camera. In a busy day, it’s time for lunch brought to the field by Gina. Others in the photo are Archie Stendahl, Bernard Moe (or Moen?), and Clifford Sween. Bennie wrote 1940 on the back of the picture.
Silo filling is the action here on the Fitch Coulee farm with Emil’s old Fordson powering the silo filler. Bennie noted that Norman Hallingstad is unloading his team’s wagon, Ednar (Red) is at the silo filler, and that he Bennie may be out in the field getting another load. The year is 1941 or 1942.
