This black and white photograph shows a woman wearing a sunbonnet serving lunch to a man seated by a covered wagon in Greenwood County, Kansas. The canvas covering is pulled open so items in the wagon are visible. The individuals have been identified by patron Bette Branscum as possibly being her grandparents Orville Alva Young and Bessie McCain Young traveling from the Oklahoma Territory to Wakarusa, Kansas to visit his grandfather James Wiley Young.
