Old farmer takes five

THIS old photograph serves as a nostalgic reminder of what rural life in the Dales used to be like.

What appears to be a farmer sits with his trustworthy dog dressed in tweeds and wearing the traditional flat cap – probably taking a well deserved break from tending to his animals.

If you take a closer look, the periphery of the photograph is equally as fascinating, though.

With a bare limestone floor and solid wood doors – it really gives you an insight into what people lived like.

Looking at the photograph makes you want to get up and explore the house this gentleman resides in and explore the outbuildings behind him.

While times have changed, a shot like this will make many yearn for a look at the past.
