Sooke Agriculture Historium - Hay Load

Sooke Agriculture Historum mural - hay load

"Hay load on the farm of Herb Blythe in the Kemp Lake area in the 1940s."

Now that's a load of hay! I love the way the artist has captured the hay's soft texture.

This barn, built in 1932 at Woodside farm, is a landmark along West Coast Road.

I love the fine details of the machinery in this scene.

Sooke Agriculture Historium - Jersey Cow

Sooke Agriculture Historium mural - Jersey cow

"A Jersey cow, vital to the farm in the 1920s, resided at the Milne farm."

Oh dear, everyone does look grim in this photo--except for Mr. Milne, who gives us just a hint of a smile. But the way Mrs. M. is holding that kitten, she surely isn't as fierce as she looks.
