Every Monday we share a vintage image on the Essex on Lake Champlain Facebook page and invite our viewers to play some Vintage Essex Trivia. The old photo above is the one we shared last week. Our thanks to William Morgan for sharing this photo (and many others!) with us.
Do you recognize this farm? Perhaps you may know or have a guess as to who the people in it are? When do you think the photo was taken? (I’m guessing early 1900s.)
It’s South Farm—this farm still stands today on land south of Essex, NY. You can see it to the right as you drive along Lake Shore Road not long after you’ve passed through the main town of Essex. Do you recognize the farm or has it changed a lot compared with how it looks today?
Here’s what the community has already had to say:
Steve Mckenna: Frisky Irwin farm?
Ronnie Marin Oliver: I agree with Steve, it looks like Frisky’s farm.
Juli Harwood: Ummmm…..?
Juli Harwood: Wait…Chris Oliver…I think that girl in the bonnet is your Mother!!! (she is older)
