Working on Wednesday: Slater

The notes for this family photograph tell us that this was taken in Bob Burke's hay field in September of 1916. My maternal grandfather Harry Slater (1888-1956) is the man on the stack and Bob is on the ground.

This is the same month Harry married my grandmother Anna Webb (1891-1973) and he was still working as a pharmacist so I don't know what he was doing on top of that hay stack.
