The Boys are Back in Town: Three Farm Boys in Chenoa, Illinois


The boys have come to town to pose for this Cabinet card at the studio of Besett and Phillips in Chenoa, Illinois. Note their terrific hats, suspenders and boots.

A grain shipping facility was also built for this area which is noted for having some of the finest soil for farming in the entire world.
