New Deal lawn cutting
Above: The description for this 1940 National Youth Administration photograph reads, "Marven Haralson, operating power mower on lawn planted and tended by youth workers, Land Propagation and Construction Project at Westley FSA [Farm Security Administration] Camp, Westley, California." Notice that the lawn mower is a Toro. Toro was formed in 1914 and still makes lawn equipment today. Photo courtesy of the National Archives.
