    Default Vintage Bee Pics............feel free to add your own

    was digging through some old pics today and decided to post some of them. they are pics of my great great grandpa D.C. Stahlman. He kept bees in New York, Nevada, California, and Idaho during his career. pics range from 1905-1913 era. i am posting links because if i downsize them they are too distorted. if anyone else has some old pics to share please post them.

    that is a good example of how farming and crops have changed. over 200 for a yard size. 30 yrs ago we ran 36 per yard. now we average 24 in a yard to get the same amount of honey. happy holidays

    Thanks for posting these! I missed them the first time.

    I really like http://i794.photobucket.com/albums/y...scan0006-1.jpg

    What's amazing is the thickness of the beard on those hives - there's probably 10 lbs of bees just handing on the front of those hives.

    not to sure about where they were exactly. pictures are just labled nevada. some pictures are dated and some are not. Jim, i believe his main crop in Nevada was sage at the time but again not real sure. In Idaho they made honey off alfala and white dutch clover. New York i am not to familiar with what the nectar source was there at the time. was a few years before my time lol
