This photo is absolutely authentic.But It proved only that the spanish farmers worked in 1936 with the tools of the Roman and Medieval periods.I think it is interesting to know how lived in Spain,the spanish workers in the sector of the agriculture.I speak of couse of the "jornaleros" who owned nothing,and not about the "labradores" who owned their litttle properties and yokes or teams.
