Scope and Content
Photographs of the Elgin County Plowing Match held at Talbotville. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal, October 10, 1947, page twenty: "At Elgin County Plowing Match at Talbotville: Greater Competition Need of Elgin Plowing Matches: Response of Contestants Disappointing, Thursday; Especially Among Juniors; Winners Announced." 2_3838: "Indians take to plowing. Here are three from the Oneida Reserve (left to right): Sam Thomas, James Hill and Elijah Antone. They competed in Class No. 1, sod, walking plow." 2_3839: "For years Alex McCormick, 82, of Shedden, has held the honor of being the oldest competitor at the annual Elgin Plowing Matches. This year he was again in the centre of things at the match held Thursday at the Auckland farms at Talbotville. Here he is seen (centre) shaking hands with Elgin's Warden, James McBain, as Agricultural Representative Vic Langton looks on. Mr. McCormick has been plowing for almost 70 years, and has used the same plow for 50 years. He retired from farming 30 years ago after hurting his knee while working on the farm. However, he says he can still show a lot of the younger fellows how to plow. Competition in plowing with a team isn't as tough now as it was 50 years ago." 2_3840: "Elgin County Plowing Match at Talbotville: General View of the Event; Held on the Adjoining Farm of Walter and Ralph Auckland."
