Two Old Photos of My father Alexander
« on: Friday 14 September 18 15:30 BST (UK) »
These two photos are of my father who was "feed" on a farm and later worked on the Railway Lines for over forty years.
When he worked on the farm, there were no tractors and everything was done using raw horse power...Imagine.!

Can they be improved.?

Here's the first one, those horses are beautiful they remind me of the horses on my fathers family farm, true workhorses.
