History Friday - A picture is worth a thousand words -

Thought today would share this picture of "Beehives on a Buckboard" taken apparently in Angaston in 1922.

This picture caught my eye because it tells a historical story. You can see how transport has changed over the years and also some of the history of how people did transport beehives back in the 1920's.

This is what I found online about buckboards in Australia - "Little runabout motor vehicles with wooden tray backs were often called buckboards in country areas until the term 'ute' became accepted in the 1950s"

Amazing what you can learn and feel from a historical photo.

Enjoy exploring history in photo's as they certainly have stories to tell.
