On Our Way Home: 1904

On Our Way Home: 1904

Title with the photo: "We are on our way home." Looking closely at the picture, it appears the woman is sitting on a wheelbarrow that is pointed the opposite way of the donkey. Doesn't look like a workable form of transportation. Location unknown but the barrel she is sitting on says "South Pasadena via Redondo" on it. So perhaps southern California. Photo taken in 1904.
