People in front of Farm
View across road towards a group posed in front of a farm. On the left a man and woman are each sitting on separate horses, and in the center another man is sitting in a buggy pulled by a single horse wearing a blanket. Two more men, three women, and three boys stand near the horses. The group poses in the driveway, and behind them is a yard enclosed by a wire fence in front of a frame house and farm buildings partially obscured by trees.
This image is part of a larger collection of over 6,000 negatives created by Charles J. Van Schaick. Van Schaick learned the art of photography after moving to Jackson County, Wisconsin. In 1885, he opened a studio in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. He was the town photographer for over 50 years. His work includes both studio portraits and richly varied and intimate snapshots of small-town, Wisconsin life.
