‘A dairy farmer leading Jersey cows down a street watched from the gate of a house by two girls.’ The date is February 1936.
The pictures are reproduced here courtesy of the JEP and the  Jersey Evening Post Collection at Jersey Archive. Otherwise, ownership of these images is retained by the RJA&HS.
Information for the captions was obtained with the kind help of Derrick Frigot, author of two invaluable works of Jersey’s farming history: Jersey’s Rural Heritage and Pioneers of the Jersey Breed.
The kind assistance of the JEP, Jersey Heritage, the Jersey Archive, the RJA&HS and Mr Frigot is gratefully acknowledged.
