Not sure when this photo was taken, but Peter Wilkie of Bardykes looks a relatively young man. (Perhaps the Wilkie family could advise which decade?). Pictured also are horses ‘Nell’ and another of unknown name.
Photo is shared with thanks, courtesy of Peter’s son, Sandy Wilkie.

Jim Cochrane Like most Farmers Peter is best dressed in his Dungerees ,just like my own Grandfather Farmers never look dressed in a suit and tie . And if there ever had to wear one would probably not relax and feel comfortable again until they were back in there working clothes.
Jim Cochrane Looks like some kind of tined cultivator that there pulling so must have been seeding time in the spring maybe March April if it was ground for oats .Maybe in the early 1940s
Ian McLean When the speedway was in Blantyre Jimmy Beaton sometimes sent me down to Bardykes to borrow a tractor, Mr. Wilkie gave me one without hesitation. Nice man. 🐯
