You Want That?

From the mid-1950s somewhere around Columbus, Georgia, it's these guys again -- Larry Lunchbox and Bob Brownbag, continuing their break from whatever it is they're supposed to be doing. 4x5 acetate negative. View full size.

Construction Workers

By the concrete mixer, I imagine they are construction workers.

Aladdin thermos

Made in Nashville. In Tom Corbett Space Cadet and Hopalong Cassidy.

Bronze workforce

There is something very statuesque about this pose, just as if the ancient heroes of Greece and Rome suddenly became working people in the 1950s!

Same age?

A couple of commenters on the previous photo of these guys (Drinking Buddies: 1955) took them to be many years apart in age: the one on the right here in his 40s, the other in his 20s, maybe father and son. In this shot, they really look to be a lot more in the same age range. The lunchbag dude seems much younger here than earlier, perhaps partly due to the pleasant and soft smile of anticipation as he digs in to reveal whatever is so appealing to lunchbox dude.

Levi's

Hey Bob, why can't we ever get bluejeans in the proper lengths?

Really got to watch what I eat Bob

My body fat is nearly at 2%.

How 'bout

I'll trade you my Twinkies for your Necco Wafers?

Hungry Man

Bob Brownbag must have made a Dagwood judging by the size of that bag.

Argyle socks!

Early prepster?!

C'mon, dig deeper --

I saw your wife put clean shirts in that bag this morning!
