Treat #6: Depression era photo of the Croys

Justus, Mollie, and Ralph Croy

Justus, Mollie, and Ralph Croy

Exuding working class strength, Justus Croy,  Mary Elizabeth (Mollie) Ison Croy and Ralph Croy gaze directly into the camera. Many photographs exist of Justus Croy as a young man, but this picture provides a window into his world as an older man at the height of the depression. A best guess for the date of the photo is 1935 to 1940. Justus Croy died of Black Lung on December 13, 1940 in Rock Springs, Wyoming at the age of 61.
