The scene in 2014:
The 1924 photo in this post was probably taken at about the same time as this one, when John Coolidge (center) was stacking kindling at his grandfather’s farm in Plymouth, Vermont. Standing on either side of him are his parents, Calvin and Grace Coolidge. Today, the barn doesn’t look much different, aside from the ramp leading up to the door.
