Migrant Mother (Dorothea Lange, California, 1936) 5

This photo taken right smack in the middle of the Great Depression tells the story on its own. It was hard and scary times back then. Looking at this picture makes me want to count my blessings.

Good picture, but we're rating on making history here and as iconic pictures of the Great Depression go this probably doesn't make the top ten.

She looks very troubled, but given the time that this was taken, she had good reason.

this picture of a migrant worker says so much about the era. she looks so forlorn,and desperate. I really feel for her. How hard it must have been for this family. how worried she must be. just trying to get through a day.A good Picture by Dorthea Lange.it makes me wonder whatever happened to this family.
