Ken and Jack: 1936

Ken and Jack: 1936

My father's family moved from a Kansas farm to Riverside, California in 1936. This picture was taken, probably by my grandfather, Paul, at about that time. I don't know if this picture was before, during, or after the trip. I remember my grandfather, in about 1970, talking about the trip from Kansas. He said that there were some poor people who suffered, but it was not like that for everyone. There was always food for his family, and he worked every day (from 1936 to 1970) except for 3 days. He ran a small dairy farm in the 1950s, and then he was a housepainter until he was about 80. He died in about 1975. I am wondering what kind of car that is.
