I assume these are tobacco stalks being hauled. Nowadays tobacco stalks are plowed under, I gather. What about then? Would these actually be corn stalks for animal feed?
At that time, the tobacco was cut instead of being pulled and the stalk was split and hung over a tobacco stick. They could have either hauled the tobacco stalks away from the pack barn where the tobacco had been stripped from the stalks, or hauled corn stalks to the stable for cows and horses to eat.
