Jerome ID: Brady Stewart taking a break during the repair of the farmhouse - 1909. Brady Stewart and three friends went to Idaho on a lark from 1909 thru early 1912. As part of the Mondell Homestead Act, they received a land grant of 160 acres north of the Snake River. As part of the land grant, there was an old farmhouse that was in dire need of repair. For 2 ½ years, Brady Stewart photographed the adventures of farming along with the spectacular landscapes.
