Barn Raising about 1922

My grandmother, an avid photographer all her life, documented her father’s building of a new barn in the early 1920’s in central Illinois. These pictures are at the beginning of her second picture album and demonstrate a keen eye for perspective as well as the engineering involved in doing such an ambitious job without the aid of modern machinery.

About glamberson

I am an amateur genealogist and a professional technologist, having experience in both areas that goes back to the 1980s (at least). My genealogical interests really began in 1979 when my grandfather died. Computers & technology have been primary interests since the early 1980s. My first personal computer was an Apple IIe bought shortly after they first became available.
