Looking Back: Troy in 1910
October 2, 2013
From Loraine Campbell, Executive director of the Troy Historic Village
Troy Township families harvested their crops by hand, and oftentimes, the women worked right alongside their husbands, even when they were pregnant.
In this photo, the harvest weather was already chilly and the families are warmly dressed, but their faces are still shaded from the bright sun by bonnets and hats. The photo, circa 1910, was donated by the Stevens family and is from the archive at the Troy Historic Village.
