In all your photo posts John, I am really liking all the different hats on the men and boys. Makes my ball caps look out of place. Thanks again for posting them all.

Straw hats and long sleeves. They protected themselves from the sun a lot more than we do today. When I was a kid all of the old farmers wore long sleeves in the summer. When they rolled up their sleeves to wash up they had brown hands and white arms. And of course the tanned face and white head above the straw hat. Jim

I thoroughly enjoy all the posts lately about turn of the century (20th century) and before concerning all the equipment and farming practices. It's kinda like a refresher course in farming history. Lest we forget.

I remember all the older farmers wearing long sleeves too. We had a neighbor 2 miles from our home when I was growing up. He would come over and visit with mom and dad and they would sit at the kitchen table and just talk for hours. Well to me it seemed like hours!! He always had a jumper coat on winter or summer. The old jean material looking jackets, we always called them jumper coats. Don't know why but we did. This neighbor was up in age when I was 7-10yrs old. He had Oliver tractors, an old line shaft in his shop, an old Dodge Pickup truck. One day my older brother looked in his truck and there was a few sticks of dynamite laying on the floor in his cab. I do remember later on my dad had the neighbor dynamite an old apricot tree stump out. The neighbor man and his wife had no children and traveled a lot and were pretty well off. One day in 1976 they were at a Grange function. While they were there and getting ready to leave a friend stopped them to talk, luckily they stopped to chat with them. While they were chatting a nice size airplane from Scott Air Force Base took off, had trouble and crashed right into their home. All three pilots were killed. There was nothing left of their home and a few buildings were destroyed. When we got home from school our dad loaded us up in the bed of the F350 and we took off down the field road. We could get close to the crash site thru the fields but authorities had the field roads blocked too close by the neighbors. The Govt rebuilt them a new house and in later years bought them out to expand the Air Force Base. After they moved into their new house we walked around their yard and there was a stump in the yard about 3ft in diameter. You could see part of the air plane wing how it sliced into the tree about 1/3 of the way thru. Now the homestead just sits there with no buildings but just trees and the land is rented out to a local farmer.
