In this photo by Simmons and Harnish, Artists, the two men are identified as Mr. Robert Richards and Mr. Jay Ford of Beaver, Oregon. We can locate a J. May Ford farming in the Beaver area (south of Tillamook) in the 1900 census, and a Robert Richards as a dairy farmer there in 1910 and 1930. While it appears both have purchased new bandannas for the occasion, the man on the left (Mr. Richards?) has boots and pants that could use a little repair. Another one of those photos where you wish you knew more of the stories of the people being pictured. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
