February 1939. "Hamburger stand in Harlingen, Texas." Chili 10 cents, breakfast 25, and the 7up is real.

This US soldier ‘found alive’ in Vietnam 44 years after being left behind.. I have read a lot of articles saying the United States left many...many, men over there. In prisoner of war camps. They were seen, it was known they were there and they simply got left.....abandoned.

"Big Brother"- August 1939. Migratory children living in "Ramblers Park." They have lived on the road for three years. Nine children in the family. Yakima Valley, Washington.

They had each other covered...no matter what. Photograph by Dorothea Lange.
