      Margaret Bourke White. In the February 15, 1937 issue of Life Magazine, her famous photo of African American drought victims standing in-front of a sign which declared, "World's Highest Standard of Living," (ironically) depicting a white family, was published. The photograph would later become the basis for the artwork of Curtis Mayfield's 1975 album, There's No Place Like America Today. Another representation of the American Way but a bread line in front of it creating the true irony.

      This is one of the most iconic photographs of the Great Depression. It perfectly conveys the irony and failure of “The American Dream” during the longest economic depression in history.
