Farm Girls

Author: Retter Hofbesitzer / Labels: , , ,

A group of young women wait by the lane in front the "chicken house."  The building was once used for a variety of small farm animals, such as chickens, ducks, guinea fowl and rabbits, but by the 1950s had largely become a storage building.  The frame building was made with clapboard siding and a concrete floor, the building was removed in the late 1980s by Roy Myers.  Dennis and Chris Myers completed the removal by excavating the concrete in 2011.

Identification of the "girls" is difficult, but believed to include Pauline "Pat" Retter (front) and Mildred "Midge" Retter (left.) We have no idea what the girls were gathered to do.
