Country Life

We love this picture of Winnie Hallis feeding her flock of turkeys and hens outside her home. Young Tommy Regan is helping her and, in the shadows, her daughters are looking on.

The water barrel collected rainwater for washing and drinking, and the oil lamp in the window provided light when electrification was still some time away.

Winnie Hallis feeding the flock, Tommy Regan is the small boy at the barrel and Patricia and Teresa Hallis are in the shadows on the left.
