Capture Life's Moments - Kraft+ April challenge

Hello, hello, thanks for calling in to say G’Day
I was inspired by the Kraft+ April challenge, 
which is to use black and white.
This  old photo was taken in 1937 and shows a style of
farming that no longer exists.

The journalling reads:-
The journalling memories are gathered from many conversations around the dinner table in later years; the work was very much the same as it had been in the 1930's.  I remember seeing the uneaten, dried up sandwiches in the bottom of the kitbag when Dad walked in the door; his face and arms absolutely black with dust and sweat.  He was a tough and resilient man, but when he trudged in the door at night, he was exhausted.
