Jacobs farm photo albums: 1959 - 1961 JBK + bonus material

Now that Jacobs farm has passed into the hands of Jim and Emma I do not know what has become of the old photo albums that were there. Nevertheless they will be steadily unveiled here and kept for posterity!

This album of photos taken by Granny from 1959 - 1961 also contained a few loose photos (not from the same dates) in the back. It's amazing to see how few cars are parked in Albert Place where we live at number 11. Today it is bumper to bumper. When will it return to its beautiful emptiness? 2059? Hopefully before that.
