The Hard Life, Part 1

Railroad workers, circa 1920s-1930s.

Their faces show a life filled with hard work, danger, and struggle yet some managed to crack a smile for the camera. A couple of the older ones look boldly toward the camera while others let the long years of work show on their faces.  A few guys wore their Sunday best for their photos but most just wore what they had on after a hard day's work.

This may be the only photographic evidence of these men's existence.
