fun extras at the steam fair



Hubby duly noted that Health and Safety would cringe watching this guy cut logs!


There were several workers' quarters cars that would have been well used a century ago.



This lady sold scones (biscuits) from the left car above.

The vehicles are before my time, thank goodness, but interesting. I especially like the kitchen with the wood stove, it might be fun to cook on one.

Hi Betty. All great shot and I loved the away the lady was dressed in costume.

Excellent photos that benefit from the sepia toning. Those workers' cars used to be called shepherds huts over here and were inhabited during the lambing season so that help was always on hand for the sheep.

My husband would have made that exact comment ... too funny.

It looks like a great fair; I love learning history at those kind of events.

Your two posts on the fair are wonderful reminders of by-gone days. I love seeing those machines and always think of what sort of lives those people lived during those times.

They are look so authentic. It could really be step back in time especially with the sepia toning. Thanks for linking up.
