The Big Catch

Three young boys show off their big catch. The boy on the far right could be Earnest (or Ernest) Johnston. Otherwise the place, location, and photographer are unknown (likely taken in central Nebraska).

On a side note, notice the dark faces and pale legs. These boys clearly worked outside wearing overalls and jeans. And the pale band on their forehead shows they wore hats.
