    "Migrant Mother", photographed by Dorothea Lange. This picture of Florence Owens Thompson (age 32) represents the Great Depression. She was the mother of 7 and struggled to survive with her kids, catching birds and picking fruits. This photo was taken after Florence sold her tent to buy food for her children and it made the first page of major newspapers all over the country.
