The Great Depression 1940 as I remember it

The Great Depression 1940 as I remember it

Out-of-work families came from all over the USA to live and work in migrant worker camps. These are not my photos, but they jostle my memory of what it was like as a four year old living in migrant workers' camps. It was a magic place for me; lots of different dialects, different stories, lots of music and beans and rice and oatmeal. We scavenged fruits and vegetables from local farms with farmers' permission. We traded labor for milk and eggs and soup bones.

More like a little girl, eager to see and hear and feel everything and not knowing the suffering that occurred all around me. It feels good to read your kind words, Sentient. Thank you.

IT sounds like you took a lemon and made lemonade.  Out of tragedy, adventure and strength.  Character and wisdom.
