Rob, once again, the difference between between the original B&W one and the by you, per usual, perfectly colorized one, is striking.
You gave these borrower a second (photographical) life.
The not overdone and well selected tones for the colorization process has meanwhile become your trademark. My compliments for that, my friend!

Because you select colours so expertly I can not imagine any other colours suiting this more. Perfect !

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Colorization is so very good, kind of makes one think, when photos are black and white, they work well, but on this one, your colors are so much better than the original. I agree with Cornelius.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

The Farm Security Administration (FSA), created in 1937 under the Department of Agriculture, helped with rural rehabilitation, farm loans, and subsistence homestead programs. The FSA was not a relief agency, but instead it relied on a network of cooperation between states and county offices to determine which clients needed loans that could not get this credit somewhere else. Farmers could use these loans to buy land, equipment, livestock, or seeds. Additionally, the FSA assisted families by providing healthcare, education, and training programs for participating families. The goal of these measures was to help families become self-sustaining. I have to wonder, though, if this obviously self-assured and healthy young fellow remained a farmer for much longer. After all, we all know the significance behind the publication date of the photo... December, 1941.
