Two Guys: 1941

Two Guys: 1941

An uncaptioned photo taken by Marion Post Wolcott in September 1941 whose neighbors show bean-threshing activities in the North Platte River Valley of Nebraska. So we'll call these guys the Legume Brothers. View full size.

1943?

It appears the plate says "43."

[Wrong! - Dave]

The work question

Are they working hard or hardly working?

Date mismatch?

If the picture was dated 1941 why is the license plate dated 1943?

[It's not! - Dave]

Cool cats

They look like a couple of pretty cool characters. The one on the right really strikes me with his cap and both his expression and body language. It makes me want to know them.

License Plate Date

Looks like the date on the license plate is '43, not '41. Would that just be the expiration date on a plate issued in '41? Or maybe my old eyes are failing and what looks like a three to me is actually a one.

[They are, and it is! - Dave]

Legume Brothers

They're nothing but a couple of "has beans."
