Description:
A photo of unnamed west Texas farmers visiting the nearest town (also not identified) during the Dust Bowl in June of 1937. This photo was taken by Dorothea Lange who traveled the United States, documenting the Dust Bowl and the Depression for the Farm Security Administration.

Interesting note: Today, businesses don't want people "loitering" outside. In the 1930's, businesses supplied benches for people to sit and visit!
Date & Place: in Texas United States of America
