I Wonder If You Know This Man

I got on Esty this morning and found this photo of a man from Durant.  Its from an Etsy shop called Snippets of Time located in Eugene, Oregon.
Anyway the photo is of a man with two horses and on the back it has Durant, O? and dated 1948 or 1943.  I'm sure its Durant, Oklahoma because I cannot find another Durant, other than Kevin.
So many Oklahomans went to Oregon in the 1930's and 1940's to work in factories or in the fields.
If you love vintage photos Snippets is worth checking out.  Also check out the magnolia capitol of Oklahoma, home of beautiful Lake Texoma.

Have a great day.

Imagine - a family treasure, unlabeled and winding up on etsy. I don't know the man but I feel a little panic that makes me want to label my old photos.
