Farm life photograph album

One image depicts a horse wearing a covering labeled "Tom Mix's Tony". This is presumably Tony the Wonder Horse, the famous film companion of silent-film western star Tom Mix.
Another image contains a street sign suggesting that this farm may have been located on or near Paulney Road in Cheshire, Connecticut.
