Apple Pickers 1913
The first has written on the back -
"Apple Pickers - Carmichael Orchard, Barnard, MO - 1913"
Can't you just see these guys getting ready to go off to fight the Kaiser in the "War to end all wars"?
But we must not forget the women. The notation on the back says - "Red Cross Meeting, 1918-Baker Homemaker Club". I'm guessing those Red Cross meetings were very important back then.
There are literally hundreds of these in the albums. Life may have been tough for these farmers but apparently there was time to pose for the camera.
