    Looks like these photos are from a fundraising drive on 5th Avenue in New York in April, 1919. A similar photo ran in the Washington (D.C.) Evening Star with the caption: "Farmerettes celebrated the first field day of the New York state women's land army in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx and in milk pails collected funds for the land army's week. Students from Barnard and Hunter colleges, from Washington Irving and other high schools and young women from industrial occupations participated in the work. They wore blue smocks and bloomers, puttees and large straw hats. Tractors and hay rigs help to supply farm color. The money obtained in part will be used to start permanent rural community centers for farmers and their families. Photograph shows farmerettes collecting money on old farm wagon on 5th avenue, New York." chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83045462/1919-04-15/ed-...
