Ferme la Vallauine, Normandy. (La Vallauine Farmhouse)
In this colorized picture a man and a woman, probably the landowners are seen standing next to the door of their Normandy farmhouse. The farmhouse is very large but note that the lines are not straight indicating that the building was not built with an architectural plan. Most likely it was constructed by the farmer himself or one of his ancestors. Compare this fairly primitive farmhouse to the impressive manor houses such as this one.
The building is a rude structure, but the man and the woman in the picture are clearly proud of it. In the close up below we can see that the farmer is wearing a bowler hat and suit, maybe his Sunday best for the photo. The woman is holding a broom, and there are a bunch of chickens clucking about. This is a traditional Normandy farmhouse from the 1800s, built of timber and brick.
