Migrant Labor Camp



Today's picture shows a migrant labor camp during the 1930's. I note that amidst a sea of tents, someone has a travel trailer. In the valley of tents, I would imagine that the man with a travel trailer would be king.

  1. The trailer is parked next to the office. I imagine it belongs to one of the big-wigs.

  2. I'd agree with Lady Anne. In fact, I'm guessing the manager lived in the travel trailer. There's an electric wire running up between the office's tent and the trailer, so presumably both had electricity, at least part of the time. It's hard to tell if the electricity ran to any of the tents where the migrants lived. In a sense, I'd bet they were glad to have a place to stay, at least for a while.
