Stove model farm

In connection with picture #26017, here's Stove model farm, Sanday, from a slide of Aug 1988. If I remember rightly, the original farmworkers' cottages were more or less behind where I was standing as I took the shot.

[ I assume the scale was 1:1 - Steven :-)]

Yes Steven, it was very much a full-sized farmstead in its day. You're bound to be familiar with the word 'model' in many contexts: it's one of the buzzwords of the modern age (except, of course, when 'paradigm' is used instead). In today's parlance I could claim to 'own' Stove; when you are interested in a thing, get to know a bit about it, and have some sort of feelings towards it, you are said own that thing. Confusing or what? And then there's emoticons, but I mustn't get started . . .

Sheena and Andrew,
If your comment was meant for me rather than Steven, the site monitor, I apologise for not answering. As far as I personally am concerned you may use this photo for any reasonable purpose. I may have other shots which I might be able to find if you were still interested.
Best wishes.
