This vintage photograph features an older man who appears to be a farm worker. He has a rugged and weathered face. I believe that his countenance  projects wisdom and gentleness. It is easy to see that he is a man that has worked with his hands. His work boots are very worn from his labor in the fields. Although I am no expert at farming equipment, I believe that the tool that he is holding, is a hoe. Note the stone wall behind the worker as well as the adjacent (barbwire?) fence.  This photo measures about 4 3/4″ x 6 5/8″ and is in very good condition. The top right hand corner has a tiny chip (see scans).  SOLD

  1. Wooden shoes indicates Dutch or German perhaps. Stacked rock fence with barbed wire could mean Texas hill country. The implement is multi functional, so held by a person that works smart.
    Love the shirt and vest. Very European looking.

  2. The boots look like wooden clogs. Dutchman?

  3. I dont believe he is wearing boots. They look like wooden shoes simular to those of a dutchman or amish man

    • I think you are right. That seems to be the consensus.
