South Dakota Photographica]: [Huffman Family]
ANNOTATED VERNACULAR PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM FEATURING A FARMING FAMILY IN SOUTH DAKOTA, WITH PICTURES OF IDENTIFIED NATIVE AMERICANS]

Comparisons of photographs indicate the author of the captions is probably Anna Huffman. Most of the photographs feature people from multiple generations of the Huffman family in South Dakota, including Grandma Benjamin. These men, women, and children pose in front of houses and on farms on the South Dakota prairie and at various spots in the capital city of Pierre. The family members are captured in a variety of activities common to rural life: feeding livestock, killing and cleaning chickens, gardening, stacking hay, camping, cutting their own hair, extracting a cow from a muddy lake, tilling farmland with early motorized tractors, and fishing in Lake Oahe.
