This shows Lester Korns on the left, and Allen Lester Korns on the right. This photograph was taken at the Wilson Korns farm in Southampton township, Somerset County, PA, and was handed down in the Calvin Bittner family line. Lester was the son of Earl Korns, and Allen was the son of John Wilson Korns. The barn in the background can be identified as the Wilson Korns 1925 barn by the door design and by the glass window locations. Allen's son Melvin told me in 2009 that the light, vee-shaped decoration on the harness consisted of celluoid rings. Melvin told me that he made up a set when he was young.
