This family was likely going shopping.  They are Mennonites from Ontario, Canada.  They live on their own in communities, they are self sufficient, they just come into town to get what they can not produce on their farms.  For more inspiring delectables, go to sepiasaturday.blogspot.com

  1. My grandfather was a saddler and harness maker, my father too until the motor car killed the trade.
    That's a great old buggy.

  2. What a beautiful and colorful card. We have a Mennonite community near Corvallis, Oregon, on the back road, and I always felt safe driving through there.

  3. We have a small community of Mennonites where I live, but they are more modern, and you rarely see any women in their prayer coverings. However, in Dayton, about 4 hours from here, there are old order Mennonites with beautiful farms. We used to take a drive out there on Sunday just to watch them race each other to church.

  4. What a lovely interesting card. I don't know much about Memmonites (will have a Google) but I see they weren't stopping to buy paint even though it was on sale :-) Jo

  5. I must admit, I always find it strange that a refusal to accept the modern always seems to have such a definite cut-off point (horse and carriages are OK but petrol engines are not).

  6. I assume you know but just in case you don't: Mennonites are followers of a 16th century Frisian priest named Menno Simons. There are still quite a number of followers here.

  8. I love the photo taken out of the window. And I'd love eat at the Goodie Shop.
