Shorpy World War II Photos-- Part 2

JULY 6, 2014, A PICNIC IN THE PARK: 1942--  July 1942.  Washington, D.C.. "A Sunday in Rock Creek Park" by Marjory Collins, Office of War Information (OWI).  Life goes on, even in wartime.

JULY 4, 2014, HECK RANCH: 1943--  Feb. 1943, Moreno Valley, New Mexico.  "William Heck ranch.  Mrs. Heck preparing supper."  By John Coller, OWI.

JUNE 27, 2014, FARM TABLE: 1943--  July 1943.  "Rockville, Maryland (vicinity).  Private Harvey Horton visiting at the N.C. Stiles' dairy farm while on furlough from Fort Belvoir, Virginia, at dinner with the family."  By Ann Rosener, OWI.  A comment said that Norman Rockwell's "Thanksgiving" painting appeared the same year.  Perhaps this photo influenced him?
