Bee Keeping Booklet
My friends Charles and Pauline gave me a Young Farmers' Club Booklet Bee Keeping. It is the fifth edition published in 1945.
I love that the chap is smoking a pipe in every image.
"A person who knows very little or nothing about bees should make friends with someone who does, and watch him handling his hives and stock. It is a good thing to find out in this way if one likes bees before starting on one's own. In most districts there is a Bee Keepers' Association, and by joining this and attending its meetings a great deal can be learnt."
