Field near Lister Cottages & St. Bernard's Railway Station, planting cauliflowers

Field near Lister Cottages & St. Bernard
June 1960. Image shows a three man team riding behind a tractor planting cauliflowers in a field near Lister Cottages, by St. Bernard's (Gildersome) railway station. More rows of vegetables can be seen between the railway line and Gelderd Road (A62) seen in the distance. One of the terraces next to St. Bernard's Mill can be seen in the top right hand corner. Railway sidings here are stocked with carriages. The black wooden goods shed appears to be in use and certainly material is being stored in the yard around it. Photograph from the David Atkinson Archive.

I think the tractor driver is probably my Dad, Albert Johnson. Interesting that the tractors rear wheels have been reversed to accommodate the width of the planting rows. I attended Gelderd Rd J&I School with Leslies sister Annette. My family lived in Lister Farm Cottages from 1952 until 1968.
