Franklin Herefords  Slater MO
That must be little Jamie in the truck!  I bet his last name is Franklin. 
That looks to me like a 1947 Two Ton Truck…but I am no expert on vehicles.  It looks like a well used truck so this photo was most likely taken in the 1950’s sometime.  He has been hunting.
Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
James L(eroy?) Franklin (February 23, 1920 - September 27, 2001) and Mildred A. Franklin (September 3, 1914 - June 26, 2008) owned the Franklin Polled Hereford Farm outside of Slater, Missourri.

Their son, also "Jim," apparently still lives there.

The truck is indeed a a 1947-1955 era Chevrolet "Grain Truck". The back actually hinged like a dump truck.
