DescriptionThe Harwood Family are gathered in front of the Crawford Road farm. Blanche, Bertha, Edna, Harold, Elvira, Arthur and his wife Eva and their son Stanley are included. This is a southerly view of the family standing in front of the main dwelling area with a chimney stack and the El is to the left. Note the shingle roof and tall chimney stack on the El. The official address was Crawford Road but it was also known as Breakneck Road, located between the fourth and the fifth resevoirs from which Southbridge obtains its water supply. Southbridge (incorporated 1816) was part of the town of Sturbridge at the time this image was captured. Original farm house built for Ezra Harwood [1784-October 30, 1856] and his wife, Sarah B. Harwood [1790-d.1846]. The couple was married in October 1810. They had six children. A saw mill, dairy and lumber business were operated from this farm.
