The lady on the left is "looping" or "tying" the green tobacco on a stick, that will later be hung in the barn. Most barns held around 500 sticks of tobacco. The young man on the right is "handing" tobacco, relatively easy, mindless work, but had to be done. hands would be covered with tobacco tar. The "truck" of tobacco has its canvas sides down so the tobacco can be handed to the looper for tying. Men are there for the picture, but this was usually work done by women and young children.

This is the Mills Family from Black Jack. Same family as previous picture but from a different angle. Reba, Lonnie, Saltie and Lonnie Ray Mills--I do not know the others.
