Oldtimers know how tough life was years ago with no electricity or running water. It is what members of the Triangle Pioneer Threshermans Association taught the two Grade 4 classes at High Prairie St. Andrew’s School May 29. Students participated in activities at four stations including rope making, washing clothes, log sawing, and a visit to PTA’s house where students watched a cream separator, and observed how antique telephones, typewriters and cash registers worked. The visit gave students a first-hand look at how people lived decades ago. While many found it fun, oldtimers are confident after a few hours or a full day, their attitudes would surely change. The photos below are all students from Pauline Pardell’s class, which visited during the morning. Karen-Lee Backs’s class visited during the afternoon.
