The way things were..........

Living quarters and "juke joint" for migratory workers, a slack season, in Belle Glade, Fla., in February 1941.

"Backstage" at the "girlie" show at the Vermont state fair, Rutland, in September 1941. 
Nearly 50 trucks lined up outside of a starch factory, Caribou, Aroostook County, Me. Some had been waiting for twenty-four hours for the potatoes to be graded and weighed, in October 1940. 
Day laborers picking cotton near Clarksdale, Miss. Delta, in November 1940.
