In this photograph taken in 1912 in Idaho, we witness a sincere moment between two farmers. One farmer takes on the role of a makeshift barber, carefully giving a haircut to his fellow farmer. The customer sits on a Sea Clams wooden box placed on a wooden chair, creating a makeshift barber's station.
Both men display a sense of seriousness and concentration, highlighting the importance they place on the task at hand. Despite the simplicity of the setting, the photo captures the mutual support that existed among farmers in rural communities.
This image offers a glimpse into a time when resourcefulness and community bonds were essential for everyday tasks.
