Rural America: Farm Life as Photographed by Pete Wettach

10 views of farm country in the 1920s, 30s and 40s, through photographer's viewfinder.

4-H in the 1950s, when projects were homegrown rather than purebreds. Dad and the kids went to the barnyard to pick out the best shorthorns from the herd and those became the 4-H project for the year. There was more to the project than a chance at a trophy. The focus was on the fundamentals of feeding, grooming, training and economics.
