This is so appropriate - the boy is barefoot and the girl is wearing shoes & socks. Young William Scott and Marion Elva (Scott) Peyton.

Her mama didn't want her to have ugly wide feet - obviously! That's what my gramma told me every time I went bare foot!

Most children didn't have shoes as it was.. they were expensive so my gramma used to tell me shoes on a child in a picture often meant a sign of wealth or they were wearing their Sundays best or none at all

This is true. I suppose that shoes were bought with a view to handing down as well.

Yep and most times the kids would only get new shoes in the fall for school to restart that is if their parents could afford new ones.

Some of them looked like bug bites scratched by a kid, and others look like the normal scrapes and all of an active boy.

The kids had no shoes so they were sent to the barn with sandwiches until they left. parents didn't want to be embarrased.

I loved being barefoot and climbed trees. I skinned and bruised my knees daily. I had long skinny feet had trouble finding narrow shoes by now my feet are normal going barefoot made them strong a foot doctor told me. When I was 15 My dad once said how will you ever get married with all those scares, I said I won't. Lol, still single still barefoot and still climbing ( mountains).

A couple of years ago, my cousin sent me an old photo from around 1920 or our fathers and their sister. They were all dressed up but had no shoes on. They lived in rural Arkansas and guess that was pretty common at that time.

Yes, many of the rural school pics of the early 1900's in Arkansas had barefoot kids. Not all were barefoot. My grandmother was one of them when she was just a little thing. There were six kids at that time, and a sick and declining father. They made do, and counted their blessings. At times they dug up their meals, and not from the garden. They always had a home and they had a lot of love.

The boy looks like he is pained to stand still, and the girl's look is hard to decipher. I don't see sadness, though.

Back then my grandmother said I could not go out of the house without shoes or the neighbors would think we were poor. No matter if they were old, small or big or my brothers old shoes ... we HAD to wear them ... no bare feet EVER outside where people could see you.

Both children look very uncomfortable as if they both have been forced to stand for the photograph. The boy gives the impression that he wants to run off, and even though his legs show his wounds his clothes are not dirty. His hat looks a tad small. Is there a story behind this picture ... there should be ...

Maybe the shoes were a hand-me-down from him. I got plenty of hand-me-downs growing up and I was glad to get them. Also in summer time we always went barefooted unless we were going to town or church.

Also, boys were trained to catch fish and craw daddies in the creak, girls were trained from an early age to catch the eye of boys. Shoes still are a challenge to demographics in our rich by divided country -- as growing up each year required new ones. However, not being the oldest meant, there would fortunately be hand me downs. while it is not a solution, why cant we in addition to teaching the world "3 part harmony", teach them how to make shoes from used tires, etc, as they do in some countries, or gallons of sustainable/ edible algae....

Take a look at this shins, his ankles, the tops of his feet. That might be one reason he doesn't have on shoes & socks. I know, he's a boy, boy's will be boys, but there could be a reason why he has nothing on his feet.

He has a lot of insect bites which have been scratched!

When I was a kid, all I had to do was walk barefoot in the dewy grass & it was like I'd been eaten up with something or that I was allergic to something. They itched, oh boy did they itch. I'd scratch & the harder I scratched the better it felt until I broke the skin. Then it was like I was skinned alive. This would go all the way to my knees, all summer long. They couldn't afford shoes for us to wear out in the summer so I was doomed to go this route for years.

I truly enjoy reading every comment on this photo of my Great Aunt Eva & William Scott. I was blessed to have grown up knowing my sweet Aunt Elva she was a very religious woman who taught me a lot about the Love of Jesus. I am blessed to be a part of her legacy.
