Migrant Farmer



Today's picture shows a migrant worker during the Great Depression. The picture was taken on a farm in California. The man looks to be about 60 years old. What a struggle it must have been for the old folks during the depression. Many had their savings wiped out by bank failures, and then lost their farms from the great drought.

  1. Being in my early 60's, I can imagine how hard this mans life was.

  2. The worst of it is, the man probably isn't nearly as old as we're guessing. Considering the life he lead, he may be only in his late 40s.
