Sharecropper Family

Today's picture shows a Sharecropper Family singing Hymns on Sunday. The picture was taken in 1935 in Alabama. The man is Frank Tengle.

  1. Those kids don't look like kids. It must have been a hard life.

  2. Wow - I'm thankful I never had to live like that. This certainly shows a situation that helped to make that generation tough.

  4. Maybelline, I also hope you/we don't have to live like that. But I've got a bad feeling about the future, personally. Even if nothing happens on 12/21/2012, I think that really hard times are coming in the next 10-15 years if not sooner. I pray I'm wrong but I'm preparing to be right!

    There's more sharecropper photos in
    the link, including Frank Tengle.
    So I guess that's his real name.

  6. Love singing hymns with our kids. We usually do it right before bed.

  7. Sorry about the late comment, but is the girl the sister or the mother? I would love to think it the latter.
