This photograph shows the South Deerfield, Massachusetts, home of Joseph Baranowski (also spelled "Baronowski" ), a farmer from what was then the Russian province of Lithuania. He arrived in the United States in 1893. His wife, Fanny, who was also from Lithuania, arrived the year earlier with their two sons. Once in Massachusetts, they had three more children.

This photograph comes from the Howes Brothers collection of photographs. The Howes Brothers, based in Ashfield, Massachusetts, made more than 20,000 images of New England rural life from 1890 to around 1910, offering a glimpse into the lives of people rarely visible in history.
