Hay wagons are prominent in this photo of haying at the Laurie Caldwell Ranch in Paulina Prairie, near La Pine. The woman in white near the center is most likely Mrs. Caldwell. A year previously, in 1910, her husband died from injuries sustained on a cattle drive, and was buried in Paulina Prairie Cemetery. Mrs Caldwell was not unique, in that a significant number of farms and ranches at that time were run by women. In 1911 as well as now, even in operations run by married couples, women were responsible for much of the day-to-day work. You can see a girl in a hat, perhaps her daughter, holding the reins in the wagon to the left. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
