HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #63

We assume that these gentlemen were driving through the New Hampshire countryside when they spotted the sign reading "Pigs for Sale". Someone said that posing might make a funny photograph for the folks back home. They stopped their touring car. They set up the camera. And click! The year was 1914, but the location of the farm and the identity of the motoring pigs are unknown.
