Lamont Schisler and Children

Lamont Schisler and Children

Vintage farm photo, Brunner Farm

How many bales can you stack on one wagon? 323, says Wade Schisler, of Youngstown, Ohio, who shared this July 1965 photo of his late brother, Lamont Schisler, and five of his eight children — Scott, then 10; Susie, 8; David, 13; Curtis, 15; and Arnold, 11 — making hay on their farm on Duck Creek Road, North Jackson. Oh, and the tractor pulling that behemoth load? A 1953 Co-op E3. (Farm safety note from the editor: Don’t try this at home!)
