Kite Flying During the Depression

Here's an amusing photo of a relative flying a kite on a windy day in the 1930's. It certainly has the look of a Depression Era scene but could be a few years later. The picture is from the Madison County area in Indiana, perhaps it is Anderson.

The framing and composition of the photo are interesting and a bit surprising for an amateur photographer. I am told that my grandfather had a great sense of humor and several other pictures in the collection support those stories.

Revision: My mother says that this is Uncle Art's farm on 600W in Madison County.
