Couple in the corn

antiqu photo of couple

Who is this couple in the corn field? Like many of the photos I have, nothing is written on the back of either. I wonder if/how they are related to me.

I notice that they are wearing the same clothes in both photos, and likely wanted to be photographed to showcase their booming garden and crops. It must have been late August or September. It’s interesting to see how close the garden is to the house.

A hint to the date is that the corn field has a telephone pole in it. I wonder what year the telephone and hydro wires were brought to Morpeth, Ontario?

  1. The couple looks very proud of their crops. I have some similar (but more recent) pictures of my father-in-law standing in front of some corn that turned out particularly well.
