Watever those kids were doing, I bet it was not consistent with modern child labor laws! I wonder if those cases of bottles on the porch are soda or something stronger?

Look at the posture/body language (whatever you call it) of the kids. Something about the way they're holding their arms tells me that they are used to working.

My dad used to tell me about his driving a team of horses for a county road building crew. The county would lease local farmer's teams for hauling, grading, etc. He was 12 years old at the time. Later he worked in a bakery after school and saturdays. His dad was there to collect his pay to help buy groceries for the family. Times were tough then.

Cities and towns used horse drawn plows up until fairly recently to clear snowy sidewalks. 1969 was the last year that the City of Jamestown (NY) used them.

I was driving a team when I was about 10 or 11. It was just to help out during the haying seasons or whenever things got busy. I wasn't big enough to do the harnessing, the bigger kids did that, but I had no problem driving them.
