For a remarkable look at pre-recovery conditions during the Great Depression, see this collection of Dorothea Lange photographs; more than 200 across 11 states.

The photographs provide a unique, long witness across several states
during difficult economic times by a single onlooker who is observing the world and its people and conditions with a powerful, constant eye.

“Even the spare, minimalist portraits Dorothea Lange sets on the stark geography of fertile fields have a pull beyond their obvious irony and harsh details.” [http://wp.me/p4RgC9-5].

The photographs display best in Adobe Digital Edition (a free download).
