Father and Daughter

Today we feature another picture from Pie Town, New Mexico in 1940. This picture shows a Homesteader and his daughter enjoying a plate of Barbeque. I love this picture, as it captures a tender moment between Father and Daughter.

  1. The father's hands show how hard their life was. I am reminded of my grandparents' hands. They were miners in southern New Mexico about this time. When my grandfather was drafted into WWII, my grandmother trapped coyotes for the bounty on their pelts to help feed us all. It was another time.

  3. Homemade dress, home cut hair and hands of a worker, like her dad.

  4. My Dad was big on family photographs. I do not recall pictures with color from back around 1940.

  5. Lovely photo. It is good to see such a hard working father spending some real quality time with his daughter.
    Permanent color photographs were first started around 1861. Around the time this photo was taken Kodachrome and Agfacolor were popular types of color film available.

  6. This reminds me of a favorite 1963 picture of my father and me at a backyard BBQ. I prepared a copy of it for my Dad for Father's Day a couple of years ago. ('Cept it's classic 60's and he wears no cowboy hat.)
