Looking up (north) over the ford we see Simmons Farm as it appeared possibly some time around 1880. This picture is not a postcard but comes from a collection taken by photographer Elijah Yeoman from Barnard Castle in County Durham who, in 1880 in Harberton, married Honor Varder, one of the sisters of Mary Varder who had married Thomas Bridges in 1869 in Harberton before they left to ultimately found Estancia Harberton in Tierra del Fuego.
