Leonard Foster on the Farm

John Vachon/Library of Congress (May 1938)

I first thought this was Glendyon Foster but thanks to Joy Wilson McDaniel I now know it was his brother, Leonard. There may be other photos where I’ve incorrectly identified Leonard as Glendyon. If so, let me know!  He and his family were well-documented by John Vachon during the course of the project. I have another photo from the same day, which is slightly damaged, but I will add it to the post when I’ve finished editing it. How about those No. 3 washtubs? I loved playing in my great-grandmother’s when I was a boy!

  1. Brian,
    this can’t be Glydon if it was made in 1938. It is his brother Leonard.

    Brian, The box that Leonard is sitting on says ” High Explosives”. Could possibly be dynamite that was commonly used during that time?
