Previous Next Back to walkabout Elijah Yeoman
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.
