Workday Wednesday - John Byron Little

Originally submitted to ancestry.com by LittleMike, this photo is of the husband of a distant cousin of my husband.  The caption reads:  Times were obviously very tough. Probably taken when he was working at the cotton gin in Langston, AL. Note mesh apron around his neck. Though obviously very tired and worrisome, the crystal blue of his eyes shows translucent white in this b/w photo.  

It appears to me to have been taken during the Depression era; Langston, Alabama is in Jackson County, in northeastern Alabama.
