Berry Pickers


Berry Pickers


Black and white image of a group of children sitting on a large rock. Two older boys hold rifles, while a girl holds a pail in her lap, its opening angled toward the camera. Three smaller children are gathered to the image left on the rock, and a dog sits in the middle of the group. Behind the children a hill with small trees and a good number of stumps rises, indicating they are most likely in part of the Tillamook Burn, an area of the Coast Range which was devastated by wildfires in the 1930s and 1940s. The boys wear overalls, while the girl wears what appears to be a short dress with hose tucked into her boots.
