Estus “Pete” Simmons

Estus (Pete) Simmons 13 Dec 1908 – 14 Mar 1960 No indication of photographer, place or date. I would estimate 1930s. I added a touch of quick hazy color for definition. There are several rusted cans on the porch rail and I believe through the window one can see a bed with a metal frame. […]
