September 4, 2009 Feedsack Friday – Labor Day!

Here in the USA, this Monday is Labor Day, when we celebrate the contributions of all the hard workers that make this country great. The first three show women at all sorts of household tasks of the past.

These appear to be younger girls, sweeping, sewing and hanging laundry.

And another, with girls ironing the clothes, but wait a minute! Don’t the guys have to do any work? Seems like feedsacks celebrate womens’ work almost exclusively.

Of course we’ve seen people working in the garden when we featured gardening, and even those clowns two weeks ago were hard at work. So take it easy on Monday, you deserve a holiday!
