J.C. Allen: Farm life in the 20th Century Through Photos @ The History Center
Jul 13 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Presented by Fred Whitford

Who among us has not spent hours studying photographs of family and friends? Images transport us to another time, another place, another state of being. Photographs of young children playing in the yard, cradling yellow chicks, or starting school air something deep within us. John Calvin Allen captured a rich collection of photographs depicting farm life during much of the twentieth century in Indiana. Allen consistently focused his lens upon farms and rural communities, resulting in a rare glimpse of agriculture and rural life at that time. Enjoy reliving the early days of agriculture from the transition from pioneer practices to scientific methodologies.
