Photo Details

Demetra Jones in 1916,age 11 years old, a farmhand. Her father, G.G. Jones told the photographer: "She's the only farm hand I got. She helps a lot in the field work and house work too. Is good in school--5th grade." Again, kids now - farmhand and in school? Hah! Get them to put their dishes in the dishwasher! ;)
