Milk Men: 1941

Milk Men: 1941

September 1941. "Two sons of William Gaynor, FSA dairy farmer near Fairfield, Vermont." Farm Security Administration photo by Jack Delano. View full size.

 

A Prized Possession

The boy on the left has an egg peeking out of his bib pocket.

Could it be a real egg found up a tree or a porcelain egg he won in some contest? Either way it would be a prize to a boy of his age and for me too about 10 years later.

Do young boys still treasure eggs today?

[Not as much as they treasure a nice shiny river stone. - Dave]

[EvenSteven ... A stone? Could be since carrying an egg in your pocket could lead to disaster especially if you have a jealous sibling.
If it is a stone then it is a cool looking stone and it would have gone into my cigar box of treasures]

Wall blob

Oh look, it’s the face of a major religious personality! No wait, maybe a map of Austria.

Robert Harold Gaynor - Oct 31, 1931-May 25, 1996 (age 64)

Their parents, William Harold Gaynor (Jun 7, 1907-Aug 9, 1983) and Lelia (Lulu) Elizabeth O'Connell Gaynor (Feb 8, 1906-1957), had 3 other children:

What a marvelous picture

Of two lovely boys, they look so angelic. But I bet they could be sitting on slingshots and rocks!
