Treasure Chest Thursday - Mom and Dad

Treasure Chest Thursday

Mom and Dad

Getting a cold, refreshing drink of water from the pump, on the farm.

I have no way of dating this except their looks and dress, but I'm confident they are newly-weds...
They married in March 1938 - the cultivator on the tractor suggests June or so.
June 1938 - on their farm (rented from his mother's estate, I believe).

I have more photos than 'artifacts' - this one qualifies as a TREASURE, to me!

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. Love this picture Dad!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Really special, isn't it! Thanks for the comment! ;-)

  3. I wanted to get a closer look at the photo. It really is a nice, rare treasure.
