      The plant in the yard is a yucca.

      The log house is built in a two pen style with dog trot.
      The clapboard addition above the dog trot looks to have
      been added later. The kitchen would be on one side away
      from the living quarters. From the style of the clothes
      worn the photos are probably form 1890-1905 era.

      The other old log house Richard posted some time ago also
      did not have a porch either, by the way that photo was
      taken ca 1940.

      For those who are not old farm boys the man in the 2nd
      photo is using a scythe with cradle to harvest wheat which
      is then bundled and stood upright in shocks to finish
      drying.

      Notice in the photo of Aunt Mamie that there is no grass in
      the yard but rather just sand or dirt. Most country yards
      in the South of this era had no grass but were sand or dirt
      swept clean with brush brooms. Two many critters about to
      hid in the grass.
