My father, Harold Forbes, is near the center of this photo, standing to left side of the tobacoo row and wearing a white golf cap. He was in the tobacco business all his life- both farming and working in a number of Greenville warehouses, usually as sales manager or auctioneer. He's not playing either of those roles in this photo, but he's staring so intently at the buyers that I think it may have been his own tobacco that was being sold at the time!
