Finishing the tatties at Rosefarm

Date Added: 23 March 2005 Contributor: Bright Gordon Year: 1967 Picture No: 1119

1967 was a very wet and muddy year. Also see picture #1113. After many interruptions, picking was finally finished on 22nd November.

Albums: Farming


The photos are of particular interest to me as I have a record that my great, great great grandfather Enoch Holme(s) married Mary Cameron of Rose Farm, Cromarty Parish. We believe they were workers on the farm as well. Their son John emigrated to Canada in the 1880s we believe. We now live near Toronto Ontario.

I would be most interested in any information about the Rose Farm and/or the families that worked there that you might be able to share.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

I have always felt that Rosefarm is the place I grew up in and in 1967 I would've been four years old, this picture I feel, would have been maybe a decade later, as I think I can remember my dad teaching me how to plough in a straight line on a similar tractor, if not the same one. The license plate should help. Comment left on 27 October 2006 at 23:42 by Angela Taylor
