Signs of the Times
This picture was taken in the fall, at a farm on County Road 46 just east of the Ruscomb River heading towards Comber.
For those of you who still use some of the historical reference, it’s on the Middle Road, which was known as Highway 98 until sometime in the 80s.
The farm used to be a Knister farm. They were one of the three earliest families to arrive in Ruscomb from Germany sometime around 1830 when there was no village. Just deep, dark, wet forest.
When I lived in Ruscomb, Edith and Leonard Pickle lived on this farm. We lived right next door to them, on the west side of the Ruscomb River. There was also a dirt road separating us and the river. The road was red because there was a brickworks just down the road and across the railroad tracks.
