Broke Winston-Salem Family Hitchhiking in California, 1936

A young, penniless family hitchhiking on U.S. Highway 99, California, in November, 1936. The father, 24, and the mother, 17, came from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, early in 1935. Their baby was born in the Imperial Valley, California, where they were working as field laborers. The photo was taken by Dorothea Lange as part of a public works project, and it was put online by the New York Public Library.
