Photographer's Note

...."Ranch Hands Old Home"....

This ...."Ranch Hands Old Home".... is located 28 miles
northwest of our home and is on the leading edge of the
Sandhills. It is also located 10 east of ...."Sandhills
Ranch..Early Morning".... in my gallery.

The Ranch Headquarters is North of here about 1/2 mile.
It was not unusual for Ranchers to provide housing for there
better and long time employees.

This old home, however, has not been lived in since the
mid 1950's according to the type of electric wiring and
telephone wire going into the house. You can see that
the front porch has recently fallen and is still leaning
against the front of the old home. In the back you will
see the old windmill used to supply water to the home
and the cattle. The heating stove was centrally located
and rooms built around the stove to utilize the heat as
best as possible and the kitchen would have been in the
back right part of the house.

Thanks to everyone for looking in.
