PORTRAIT OF AN OLDER FARM WORKER (HE IS OUTSTANDING IN HIS FIELD)

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

Tractor 2019-09-29 at 2.04.05 PM

This vintage snapshot photograph features a farmer and a little girl riding a large John Deere tractor. Beneath the John Deere name printed on the tractor, are the words “Made in USA”. It seems the company took pride in being an American manufacturer. The reverse of the photo has an inscription indicating the farmers name and the year it was taken (1948). Perhaps the child is the farmers daughter or granddaughter. This photograph measures about 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ and is in very good condition.

A FARMER AND HIS FAMILY IN A FIELD (VINTAGE REAL PHOTO POSTARD)

farmer 2

A farmer stands in his field with his wife and two young children. They seem to be “salt of the earth” type people and are likely living a hardscrabble life. The farmer is wearing overalls and holding a tool. His horse and plow and the family dog  are also in the photograph. This image is an unused real photo postcard. The identity of this farm family and the location of their farm are unknown.
