In this black-and-white photograph of Thomas Lynde of Guilford, Vermont, there are two trees visible in the foreground. There are also two oxen hooked up to a six-ton boulder. Lynde is shown with a white beard standing proudly next to his oxen. We think the sign next the stone says “This stone was found November 31,  Ections Rd. Wt. 6 Tom.” There are also two stone walls, and snow on the ground.  Lynde seems to be holding a whip. He is wearing boots, a hat, a jacket, and rolled-up pants.

There isn’t anything that mentions this photo in the Official History of Guilford, but it was most likely famous in its time, because it seems like Thomas Lynde may have won a prize for his oxen pulling the stone.
