Hopping Freight Train
Today's picture shows a Hobo hopping a freight train. The picture was taken in 1935, which would have been at the depth of the Great Depression. Many men would hop freights hoping to get somewhere that they could find work. So often times "Hobo" was not synonymous with "Tramp". Often Hobos were displaced workers traveling trying to find some type of work.
