Stranded Family in the Dust Bowl

This is a picture of a family stranded between Dallas and Austin, Texas. The family had left their home in South Texas, and had hoped to reach Arkansas for work in the cotton fields. The family is flat broke, and broke down. The father is trying to repair a tire. The father said, "It's tough but life's tough anyway you take it". Photo was created in 1936 by Dorothea Lange.
