End of Shift, 3:30. Notice how these people are entirely unrelated to each other. This is the story of these times and the shipyards. — 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.
