Farmers Resting



We wrap up this week of pictures with this nice image of farmers resting from their work. They are part of a threshing crew working in a field, and have paused for a break. The picture was taken in 1939 in Frederick, Maryland.

  1. When I was a kid, during harvest time. our lunch consisted of a sanwich and a bottle of coke thrown up to us on the combine, and we ate and drank on to go. We didn't even stop the combine to unload, we did it on the go. HURRY, HURRY, HURRY, had to beat that storm that may come.

  2. Is that a harmonica in the boy left hand?
    He looks like he is wearing his Dad's old boots

    1. At first I thought it was a box of matches, but I think your right, it looks more like a harmonica.

  4. I noticed the mans haircut, bowl style. I always thought that was a funny looking style haircut and then wouldn't you know it, the 90's came around and the big style for my 2 boys and most of the kids was the "skaters" cut. It's identical to this mans haircut, the bowl cut. I used to say to my boys, "Lets save some money, instead of paying for a hair cut I can give you the same exact bowl cut at home." They didn't want to have anything to do with that! Enjoy the weekend folks.
