  1. That last photo is making me feel the grimness that those kids probably felt. Thanks for this post.

    Wonderful choices for our theme! The eviction photo is a very good match, and something we still see today. I like the last photo as it captures the difficult life of rural Florida/Georgia during the depression.

    Public eviction and humiliation – so sad. I’ll bet those kids in the last photo were glad to have the bed frames to hold on to. Looks like they could easily fall right off.

    Incredibly moving photos. That last one in particular, by Dorthea Lange, captures the trauma of the Great Depression. But the middle photo also illustrates the hardships of those without means when the rent bill comes due. The first photo is more hopeful — presumably a van catering to those who were moving by choice. I love the period typeface on the van!

    Good prompt match. I noticed one woman smiling in the eviction photo. I’ll bet she was the one who held the family together no matter what befell them!
