Horse and Wagon: Hay Making Time.
This older photo was brought to me to be framed. It is an iconic photo of the 'old way' of making hay on Cape Breton Island. This picture was from the North East Mabou area and it was a pleasure to frame, mainly because this is how my father made hay. I have pictures of my Da making hay this way in the 1960's. After his horse died, he got a tractor, cut it with the side mower and forked it on to the back of his old International truck. Unfortunately, this kind of life died with the older generations. It was nice to see this picture and remind me of my childhood.
