condition: fair
model name / number: Honyockers
The term “honyocker” started in the 1890s in Montana. It was a cattleman’s slur for newly arrived European sodbusters. Local ranchers were pissed that these newcomers were turning up their grazing fields.

This photo shows some of the rancher’s resentfulness, implying that these immigrants only washed their clothes once a year.

The card was affixed to an antique photograph book, which explains some of the black paper remnants on the back.

The front is in pretty good shape.

Note: Shipping can be arranged.
