Reminds me of when I worked on a farm near Winwick In 1944,I use to walk behind the the Draft horses.

Now that's nice. I like this one. But why do I think the plough man isn't a real farmer.?

Best of all, those horses really look as if they are enjoying their task.

I beg to differ with she44, as I would like it much better in colour.

Brilliant photo Dave. It's a pity you've not got the colour version so that we can compare. It's possible, in this case, that they're equally as good. How's that for diplomacy?

I have got the colour version Frank.

I took it as a colour photograph.

Hi Dave. Stupid of me not to think of that...the only things I can say in my defence are that I'm not a photographer and I'm usually 10 years behind the times in terms of new gadgetry:o)
The gentleman in the photo bears a strong resemblance to my cousin James (Burley). He lives in Orrell and certainly isn't a farmer:o)or at least he wasn't the last time I spoke to him. I'll make inquiries.
