People Towns and Places. . . . All on Migratory labor on the road, and in the camps. Pretty cold. Made over a week-end. These are all about the migratory workers, different aspects, in the same dreadful monotony. — Dorothea Lange
Alternate Title and/or Date
During her lifetime Lange’s photographs appeared in a variety of exhibitions and publications, sometimes years after they were taken. This often resulted in multiple titles for the same image.
