Description/NotesImage Description from historic lecture booklet: "Now from the one 1700 acre estate the Land Commission is making about 30 family sized farms. These are being sold to reliable young families who are paying on an amortization plan extending over 68 1/2 years. This picture shows Mrs. Jack Dooyar in front of the house in which she and her husband lived for years as laborers on the estate. Because of their faithful service, they were given the opportunity to buy one of the small farms. They are now raising potatoes, cabbage, mangles, turnips, oats and hay. They have 8 cows, 20 sheep, 20 pigs, and 200 fowl. All this is on 40 acres." Photograph was hand colored.
