FARM SCENE, Rural Ireland

scan0046aThis is a stereoview card photo.  Most of the stereoviews were in black and white, but this one is hand tinted and marked “reproduced” from a 1905 version.  Note the family in the doorways and the pig in front of the wagon.  I think that’s a goose on top of the pile of…whatever that is in front…hay?  Turf?  Not sure at all!
