Pre-Bo Diddley...

But this picture still makes me think of the lyric:

Night was dark, but the sky was blue,
Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew,
Heard a bump, and somebody screamed,
You should have heard just what I seen.

Yes, he does.

A bucket to you and me but endless possibilites for the young.

The Kid

Looks like he does have a bucket on his head. And another little kid in front of him (facing him?). Must be playing.

Pail Face

Does the little kid have a bucket on his head?
