Another Red Barn

I happened to be in an antique store today and found this photo of a fine-looking farm (with cow grazing in yard) …

(Click on images to enlarge)

… but what really interested me was the other side, which had a stamped form and handwritten information very similar to the Prochno farm photo.


Just for kicks I looked James Dodd up in the census; in 1920 he was 53 years old, farming his own land in Wall Township, Ford County, Illinois.

Melvin, Illinois is in the next township over — Peachtree Township.

We now conclude this completely irrelevant post.
