Photo memory 70 - Prairie ensemble, posed in costume

In this photo, five figures dressed in prairie costume stand in tall grass, posed before a weathered shed. The men are wearing denim bib overalls, one rests his hand on a 12-string acoustic guitar and another other, the barrel of a rifle. The women wear calico print dresses with ruffled aprons, one with a prairie bonnet on. We believe this photo to be from the 1970’s. Can you provide any more information? Please share your memories as they relate to this photo.

This is perhaps one of the more unusual photos in our collection. A student plays pinball with a robot? There’s a foosball table and maybe some other arcade games in the background. If you can share any information about where and when this photo was taken or some explanation of the robot, we’d certainly love to hear about it.
