Barn Charm Monday -March 19, 2012


Having been absent from Barn Charm for some time,

I am planning on joining the fun once again.

This week, however, I do not have

a picture of a barn, but something

definitely related. In fact, I found this

at my Grandfather's farm along

with lots of other fun things.




Beatty Brothers Barn Book
published in 1931
Lots of barn building ideas etc.
Lots of diagrams too.

Here are just a few examples of
some of the inside pages:







If you are interested, you can see some of

the treasures I found about 3 posts down.


Lots of barns found here:

That looks like a wonderful book! It would certainly give a bit of insight into farming techniques of the past.

What an interesting book. The blueprints must be fascinating to look at (not to mention all the other barn related information). I love vintage books, and have quite a few (of varying titles) dating to pre 1920. It's amazing how many have survived the years and are still in great shape.
