Poor Barefoot Child

This picture shows a poor child, barefoot and wearing tattered clothes. It was taken in 1921 in Mlinton, West Virginia. While the child is obviously living in abject poverty, their is one encouraging things . . . she is on her way to school.

  1. Sorry I'm only seeing this eight years after you posted it; but is this Marlington, WV or Milton, WV. I'm working on a picture essay of Appalachian women and having the location will help with my project. Regards!
