This morning's picture is from 1937, and it shows a sharecropper plowing a field for cotton. The picture is from Greene County Georgia.
It is my impression that most sharecroppers were pretty much gone by the 1940's. With the increase of mechanization on the farm, it became necessary to have a tractor and other such equipment to compete.
