    Some of these black and white photos, while the subject is dear to us, are perfectly exquisite photography. This is one of them.

    A photo, Uncle Harold and three unknown military buddies? A wedding party? A house? A dog? Where is this old barn? That's Hoover Dam but...?
    Occurs to me writing this, value of snapshots might be 100% only for who took it, degrading by generation quickly after that.
    Simple notes make genealogy far easier.
    Stilldoinit & Toolmaker51 and anyone else interested:-)
    I often wonder about family heirloom pics but this one takes the cake or..a..glug. No caption on the back but I reckon it might be "Cheers Mate" or "stop acting the goat and give me the real stuff" or...........No year noted but the tie suggests a time I should remember around 1970 or so:oh well I still like it!

    Perfect example. Suspect not so long after, who's ever heirs find this without a shred of detail; about the circumstance for either old goat.

    WOW! Historically an awesome operation, as a Food Safety Manager, Laying any type of food on the ground is a HUGE no no, even on racks like those. If I saw a restaurant laying food on the floor it would certainly be my last trip there!

    I do believe the fish is laying on racks,not just laid out on the old creosoted planks, as you can see what seems to be a rack leaning up on the left side of this picture! Just my observation! We have to remember,people were on average more healthy then compared to today's generation, because the crap we and most of us people eat today!
