Boy Gardening



Today's picture shows a young man gardening. I am guessing he is about 12 years old. The picture was taken in 1942. Close examination of the picture reveals that he has a pack of Bull Durham in his shirt pocket. So, as much as I like that he is gardening, I am a little distressed that he is smoking already.

    The dangers of smoking and chewing tobacco were not fully understood in the 40s, and there are still folks who deny it. Until the Federal Government stepped in, the legal age for buying tobacco in Tennessee was 14.
