Transcribed Notes
Transcribed from photo sleeve: "Inscription on the back of the original photo, written by Billie Bettles in the 1980s reads: this [picture] was made the day they were cutting rye, 1949. House and outbuildings were constructed by Gordon Bettles on the T & T Ranchk, Amargosa Valley, NV, about 1949. The house pictured on the right was moved to this location from Death Valley Junction, California, by the Bettles. A field of rye is pictured in the foreground. The man on the right is Gordon Bettles and the 2 men on the left are unidentified, though the man on the far left may be M. P. 'Gless' Glessner."
