    Thanks Harv. I'm looking for a pic taken when I was about 10 yrs old of me wearing a cowboy hat & playing an old May Bell parlor sized guitar outside under a shade tree where we lived. It was a black hat with white brim lacing. Don't know whatever happened to that hat but I still have the guitar, all split & in sad shape.

    The flushing of streets by sprinkler trucks was a widespread if not terribly effective public-health measure during the "Spanish influenza" epidemic of the late teens.San Francisco circa 1919. "Nash Two-Ton Tanker Truck." This begins a new series of photos, scanned by Shorpy from large-format negatives taken by or for Christopher Helin, travel and automotive editor of the San Francisco Examiner

    When I was very young I had a great aunt who lived alone in a shack that was originally made from wood shipping cartons from the RR. It had a dirt floor that had been treated with linseed oil which made it like concrete. She would sweep it with a broom. She was widowed at a young age & was my grandpa's sister, so we would stop by frequently to check on her & help her out.

    I came from folks like the one in the picture. My dad was born in a "half dugout," a hole in the ground that was roofed over by whatever they could find. He was the seventh of eight kids, all itinerant farmworkers in the cotton fields of west Texas, 1921. Even after we moved to CA when I was a kid, I wore overalls like that until I was in second grade. I thought I had really arrived when I got real pants.

    What a difference in affluence, from yesterday's picture. What a difference a thousand miles makes, on the same continent:

    San Francisco, 1922. "Official Red Cross car." Being loaded with sacks of something outside the premises of Rex Products Co., Jobbers.

    This is a real dugout that some of Quantrill's men would winter over in on what was then the Morgan Walker farm. It was allowed to be used in the 1994 movie, "Ride With the Devil". Today the property is part of a wildlife preserve, the dugout is off limits & most people don't even know it's there.
