I am so very pleased that those photographs have created some interest. Any photograph that is old brings the past back to life again.
It makes me wonder wether they ever used the term " Barbed Wire " as it says " Bearded Iron Wires " on Pic 7.
I wonder if it was a french term ?
Yes David I missed the word " Germen. "
What an amazing link, Cadeau. It makes fascinating reading. A great find! I should be reading my daughters a story but the development of "bearded iron wires" (Post #3, second picture) is distractingly interesting. Thank you.
And to think that there's a whole museum dedicated to barbed wire is mind boggling! Did you notice it's in Amarillo, of the old Rolling Stones' (and many other artists') classic "Route 66" fame? David
