 in need of repairs.....
 but the fence posts...
 everyone was different...
 Hubby could of taken pictures of every post..

  1. It would be interesting putting those posts in the ground. I imagine the holes would have been hand dug, or drilled. Work!

  3. ooohhhh it's a very cool fence. most folks probably just drive right by, and don't even notice how unique it is. i don't know anything about strands....apparently that's good ;)))

  9. The fourth shot is my favorite but I also like the post in the fifth shot.
    I wonder if it was planned that way or a case of using what was on hand.
    What a unique find Bev!

    In answer to your question on mine if using tree trunks was normal for fencing. Yes, especially locust tree posts because they tend to last a long while. When you are clearing land for farming it's just as easy to use the cut down trees rather than buying ready made posts or it was for the fence I posted. Today the metal rods are in much greater use.

  10. Whoever made that fence used all the wood he had available.
    Lots of character.

  17. Now that's the way to build a fence! :-)

  18. The person who built the fence made use of what was at hand...I love that! It does have some wonderful character!

  19. Now that is a cool fence. What an original idea - I've not seen anything like that before. I wonder if it will start a new trend :))

  20. This is one of the fascinating things about old fences it seems. Everything is put to use--or saved for later use. What it looks like doesn't really matter. But, is it functional? Like to think that these fences say a lot about the people who own them.
