Looking up to your father

The totally honest look of admiration and idolization in the eyes of that little boy for his father could never be posed or faked. It amazes me to see repeatedly on Shorpy how one picture really does speak a thousand words. Thank you for a truly heartwarming photo in which material wealth is not a factor in determining the important things in life. Happy Father's Day to all the devoted dads in the world.

Big Bucks!

I just read an article in the L.A. Times saying that oilfield truck drivers are being offered $140,000 plus. Wonder what this guy was pulling down. The kid's look of adoration makes Father's Day!

"Thank you, dad"

... for this cute puppy dog and my new overalls!

True love

in the eyes of that little boy for his dad.

Four Paws and a Pa

Perfect!
