I can remember visiting the farm one evening when i was maybe 4 or 5 and what the conditions were like in those days—It was gettting dark and for what reason we were there i cannot remember. The farm had no electricity, it never did have, and the only light in the house was from kerosene lanterns or candels, heat was from a wood stove or fireplace. The rest of the house was always closed off from the kitchen as it was the warmest room. I guess they slept with lots of blankets in the winter anyway.There were 4 kids, waino, ebba, and nan and andy and gramps and gramma..In finn grandmother was called mumu.This was the family that lived on the farm before anyone got married and moved. I guess waino was first to move as he was the oldest, next in age was aunt nan, then andy, and last was ebba. Ebba was mentally retarded to a great extent and she became a threat to the safety of the others as she tried to set fire to the house and tried to harm herself also. She was finally committed to a mental institution in gardner, later transferred to another hospital where she passed away---check the age in the family history. I believe judy and i were her only visitors in all the time she was in the hospitals, according to their records—What a life!!!!— Besides no electricity the farm had no running water or inside plumbing—Water came from a well just outside of the kiitchen door, it may have been piped to a hand pump at the kitchen sink which is what we had on rindge rd.—Toilet was a 2 seater in the wood shed which was next to the house, almost attatched to it.— There was always a sears catolog in the toilet—Xcuse me, out house for 2 purposes 1 for reading, 2 for, well you guess.Bowow—In the cellar was storage for potatoes and other veggies grown on the farm. The farm was primarily a dairy farm, i don’T remember how many cows there were, perhaps 10-12—And at some time they also had a horse, maybe two. There were at least 40-45 acres of land on the farm and andy had bought some of it to build his house on and nan and gusti had a farm of 25 or more acres at the beginning of bennett rd. Most of rindge rd was finn country in those days.—I can remember helping andrew with doing the haying for a few years after the farm was dying out, bill and both helped and as a reward for our hard work andy would take us to billy ward pond or j fitch pond for a swim.We even went swimming at lake sunshine which now is jsm.’S favorite vacation spot.Nan’S farm was a chicken farm as she was known as the egg lady of fitchburg as she delivered eggs to many people at the stores on main st. And the rest to the u-coop farmers store—She used to drive an old ford pickup truck. Nan and gus did have one cow just for their own use.—Gus always made apple cider in the fall as he had a press for making cider, just like mr. Price. This is getting to be a longer story than i figured so i will continue it, by popular demand? At a later date---i thought it would be good for all you guys to know where and how it all started.---the foto is one that waino must have taken from a good vantage point. I wonder if he had a premonition or sumpin—I sure am gratefull to have these fotos and thanx to bjo they are all on disk.---more coming soon, love dad
Cornhill, London, UK
Cornhill is a ward, and one of the principal streets of the City of London, the historic nucleus of modern London. The hill from which it takes its name is one of the three ancient hills of London; the others are Tower Hill, site of the Tower of London, and Ludgate Hill, crowned by St Paul's Cathedral. The highest point of Cornhill is at 17.7 metres (58 ft) above sea level. History: Cornhill is one of the traditional divisions of the City. The street contains two of the City churches designed by Sir Christopher Wren: St Michael's, Cornhill, on the site of the Roman forum of Londinium, and St Peter upon Cornhill (1680), reputed to occupy the oldest Christianised site in London. At its other end it joins Threadneedle Street, Poultry, King William Street and Lombard Street. Sir Thomas Gresham's original Royal Exchange fronted onto Cornhill, but its successor on the site, designed by William Tite, faces towards the Bank of England across the junction with Threadneedle Street. The "Standard" near the junction of Cornhill and Leadenhall Street was the first mechanically pumped public water supply in London, constructed in 1582 on the site of earlier hand-pumped wells and gravity-fed conduits. The mechanism, a force pump driven by a water wheel under the northernmost arch of London Bridge, transferred water from the Thames through lead pipes to four outlets. The service was discontinued in 1603. This became the mark from which many distances to and from London were measured and the name still appears on older mileposts (but see also the nearby London Stone and St Mary-le-Bow church). In 1652, Pasqua Rosee, a native of Ragusa, opened the first London coffeehouse, in St Michael's Alley, Cornhill. The publishers Smith, Elder and co, based at 65 Cornhill, published the popular literary journal Cornhill Magazine (1860–1975) as well as the "Dictionary of National Biography". The magazine was first edited by William Makepeace Thackeray. In Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Bob Cratchit slides down Cornhill 20 times in honor of it being Christmas Eve. Today: The street is commonly associated with opticians and makers of optical apparatus such as microscopes and telescopes. A statue of James Henry Greathead was erected in 1994 outside the Royal Exchange, which lies within the ward boundaries. Role in City of London elections: Cornhill is one of 25 wards in the City of London, each electing an Alderman, to the Court of Aldermen and Commoners (the City equivalent of a Councillor) to the Court of Common Council of the City of London Corporation. Only electors who are Freeman of the City of London are eligible to stand. The current Alderman is Sir David Howard (3rd Baronet) MA FSI, the 673rd Lord Mayor of London and the current Members of Common Council are Revd Stephen Haines (Deputy) and Peter Dunphy.
