Working Gals

Working Gals

Another great pic from my Instant Relatives collection. Per consulting with a friend who's an expert on Fashions of Yesteryear, these gals were probably working the fields during WWII. Their hair is pulled back into a turban or bandana, something stressed, so it wouldn't be caught in the equipment. Written on the back of this photo (in pencil!) is "Felma and Grace Cardin.". But for some reason when I look at this photo, I can't help but think "Thelma & Louise."
