When I was a kid in the 1970's photography was expensive. A roll of film was a couple of bucks and prints were around 25 each, so photos were very selectively chosen. I wonder what the cost was to take photos in 1926. How much did film cost? How much was processing and making prints? And why would someone take a photo of a guy putting trash in his trunk? My dad mostly did slides because they were cheaper. Of course now to reproduce the slides into prints or digital format eats up that cost savings.

I'm wondering about the tail light. Maybe it's a Canadian thing? The U.S. versions were mounted the same, but are different.

I thought he was placing a bag of something into the trunk, not emptying the bag. The lower end is smoothly creased, as would be the bottom of a bag. The end in his hand is wrinkled, as though the bag had been used and re-used.

Further, he has a hat in his hand. It's not clear whether the hat is in the bag or not.

I wonder if he's saying Goodbye to an old hat, as he places it in the bag of trash, as he prepares to take it to the local dump.

Fun, isn't it? Keith's post is correct - this photo meant something to somebody.

Pretty clear, a hat is either going into, or coming out of that bag.

i think he's putting his hat in bag for safekeeping, or out, as not enough room up front. probably keeps bag in trunk for that purpose. notice hat shaped head/ hair.

Think he was too tall for the car with the hat on because he sure doesn't look it.
