New Mexico Dust Storm

Today's picture shows a dust storm in New Mexico. The picture was taken in 1935. What a terrible time this must have been.


  1. Boy, this photo really shows the misery. I can see why folks packed up and left for another part of the country. Thanks for sharing these photos.

  2. The man looks totally hopeless about his life. I bet he's got his back to the wind, to keep the grit and dust out of his eyes and mouth as much as possible. These photos have given me almost as much a feel for the Dust Bowl as reading "Grapes of Wrath." Amazing how much pictures convey.
