    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

    Here's one of my great - grandfather working his bees. Its not very old. Maybe about 25 years or so. I just like the dynamics of the photo. Wish I had taken a better pic other than on my phone from a photo album...

    Nice pictures Greg. I'm guessing the one tagged "09" is Idaho or Nevada instead of NY? The bushes look like sagebrush and the ground and surrounding hills look like high desert.

    Great pictures. I noticed the ribs on the animals pulling the wagon of the first picture..... Times were tough.

    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.

    One could only imagine how much work was involved in that whole process. So what was the flow, sage? any huajilla out there?
