This is a boarding school or college in the background, well-educated men who were fortunate to have access to a car in the mid-to-late 30's. Obviously on their way to a golf outing, judging by the club and the bag. Well-tailored clothes, come from a wealthy family. I can't read the writing on the tire or recognize the license plate's state but there are definately clues here.

My dad and his best friend. This picture is pre-depression. My dad graduated from Stanford Law in the middle of the depression and his first job (law degree in hand) was as a night watchman in one of the old Hollywood Studios.

Not for the same reason but, in a way, similar nevertheless is the fact that, at the the beginning of the '60's, students were being urged and actually pushed into earning various kinds of engineering degrees. Quickly, there was a glut of engineers in the market, which resulted in a lot of well-educated laborers.
