Charles Woodman Fuller is standing on the left overseeing his harvest crew - no mention that any of them are family, Except on the far left is Babe Fuller about 11 years old ....

Babe said that this is the last Picture of Charles Woodman Fuller before he died
|3||Fuller, Charles Woodman Farm/Ranch Land |
The Fuller Farm/Ranch was in fact Charles W.'s homestead located at the NW 1/4 of Section 2, Tsp 29, Rg 23, W4 meridian. Three of Charles' children homesteaded the other 3 quarters of Section 2:
NE 1/4 - His son Allen
SE 1/4 - his son Jesse
SW 1/4 - his daughter Anne and her husband Norman McClellan
This map show that the Farm was about 1 mile south of the land above the mine, where the family lived part of the time and Harry and his new wife Nellie lived there for awhile after they were married.

|24||Harry Fuller on the farm|
Harry and his favourite horse
|25||Harry Fuller the farmer|
Here Harry is making stooks .... a group of sheaves stood on end to dry before being picked up and fed into the thrashing machine to harvest the grain out..
|26||Harvest time on the farm|
After the sheaves of grain were dried in stooks, the sheaves were picked up by loading then into a big wagon. The wagon was then parked beside the threshing machine and a man with a pitch fork then placed each sheave of grain on a conveyer belt which fed the grain into the threshing machine. He had to be careful to feed each sheave head first into the threshing machine.
|27||Ollie and Babe Fuller on the Farm|
Ollie and Babe were the two youngest boys and spent a lot of time together.
|28||Ollie and his chickens|
Babe Fuller commented that Ollie loved looking after the chickens and he treated it as not just a job but it became his passion and I am sure that the family got more eggs each day because of it.
|29||Plowing a field|
This is a very early old tractor pulling a plow and likely "breaking" a field from the original grassland to a plowed field so that grain could be grown.
Ollie is shown here with two of the farm horses used to pull farming equipment of plowing, harrowing and even swathers. During this time in history a farm could not operate without these horses. A good farmer had to be a shrewd horse trader as well.

|44||Charles and Harry Fuller on the farm |
This is Charles standing and his son Harry sitting in the buggy.
Jack Balderson told the story that when Charles W Fuller retired, he and Grace loved to drive in a one horse buggy to visit family and friends - especially on Sundays and this almost certainly is the horse and buggy they drove in.
The boys were cowboys and one thing they liked was breaking horses so they could be ridden. Here is Harry doing just that.
|46||Nellie and friend on the farm|
|47||Fuller, Ollie with nephew Charles |
Charles was the son of Harry and Nellie. Picture was likely taken down by the Rooming House

Glen was a cowboy, but this picture was taken at the Calgary Stampede in a dressup booth.
|50||Carbon fairgrounds picture |
That is Grace Fuller in the very middle in the black dress and black hat
This is taken on main street and was the custom of the day to have a parade, perhaps for July 1 or just before the local stampede.
I am sure the Fuller Cowboys are in this parade.
