Taken in September 1951, this picture shows a plowing match held at Homer Cross's farm in Farm Point. This event was part of the Lower Gatineau Plowing Match. Such events were reported to be one of the largest social events of the year for local farmers. Note that both horses and tractors are working in the fields. Several hundred meals were served at the farm house over the course of the weekend.
