These are snapshots from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
These gals are picking potatoes. They carry empty sacks on their backs. There will be one or two bushels per sack. You can see the sacks in the distance. ( They look like bushel sacks.)
These men are most likely headed into the field to pick up full sacks.
My uncles picked potatoes in the 1940’s. They were paid 25 cents a bushel. In Minnesota the potato harvest will start right after Labor Day.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
