"The oldest girl cares for the family"

"The oldest girl seated in the doorway of the house trailer cares for the family." 
Yakima Valley, Washington, 1939 
by Dorothea Lange.

An evocative Library of Congress photo from the Great Depression, posted at Historical Times, via old photos, young kids.


  1. Photos like this one always makes me ponder what became of the subjects. A very poignant photograph, nonetheless.
