Cotton Camp

Today's picture shows a migrant worker camp. The picture was taken in the Mississippi Delta in 1939. The workers were brought in to pick cotton. I am not sure when cotton picking became mostly automated, but I can remember in the 1960's there were still examples of people picking cotton by hand.
