Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - Iowa Farm 1947

This is the Iowa farm where I was born and raised - from the air - 1947.


Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. How unique. To think somebody thought to take this photo and it is being shared today. I enjoyed seeing it. Thanks for the smile on my face at 6:45 AM.

  2. Wonderful aerial pic Bill...thanks for sharing

  3. There must be a story behind how you recieved an aerial photo! Did you know someone with a plane?

  4. Thanks for the neat comments! ;-)

    During the late 40s, early 50s, there quite a few "Flying Farmers." Farmers who had small planes they flew off of grass strips on their farms. Our neighbor (my uncle) was one. However, this was taken be some enterprised fellow who took up a photographer... these were made of everyone's farm and you had to buy the photos! You got a big print, 24x36 or such, framed. My brother actually has be big one. I just got a little print, but sure am Dad bought one, and I kept it! Lots of folks wouldn't pay the price, of course.

  5. Wow... it's really fun seeing all the bright white out buildings from the time period.
