June 1939. Another look at the fellow we saw here last week, this time with some company. "Veteran migrant worker and his wife camped in Wagoner County, Oklahoma. He has followed the road for about 30 years. When asked where his home was he said, 'It's all over.'" 35mm negative by Russell Lee. View full size.
Resuming our visit to the Great Lakes port of Marquette, Michigan, circa 1908 in a view joining two 8x10 glass negatives. At right is another glimpse of Front Street, showing many of the same buildings seen here yesterday. Moving out of the frame, we continue into the panorama that was the subject of the previous post. Points of interest here include various signs, a baby and a cat. View full size.
