Item Information help

  • Description
    Caption by photographer (Andrews): "Photographed on the Davis Farm near Chatham, Va., 1976. Bill was a friend of my grandmother. When I was a child, she would take me with her to visit the Davis farm. I knew the Davises very well. They are all dead now, their farm sold and is now a high-end housing development. The Davis family was a real link to the past. They never got accustomed to the Twentieth Century."
