Water Break



Today's picture shows a cowboy taking a water break. The picture was taken in 1939 on a ranch in Montana. You can see the water came from an aluminum jug, and he is holding the lid to the container in his left hand. Typically the cup would be hung on a nail somewhere nearby, and everyone would share the same cup.

  1. Looks like a milk can...my grandfather was a dairy farmer... used to take one out in the fields filled with water...also had a friend in high school whose grandfather made and stored homemade wine in them...I think theirs were made out of stainless steel...
