Migrant Mother in 1936

This image was taken by photographer Dorothy Lange during the Great Depression. She stumbled upon a camp in Hoboken where she searched through the crowds of starving workers until she found the lady in this image, Frances Owens. She took 6 images of Frances with her children, and you can really see from this image how a picture speaks a thousand words. You can see from her face the stress and worry that she faced. Dorothy Lange informed the authorities of the starving workers in the camp and they sent 20,000 pounds of food to them.
