Circleville: 1938

Circleville: 1938

Summer 1938. Circleville, Ohio. "Dwellers in Circleville's 'Hooverville.' During Depression many farms of the district were foreclosed. People who lost homes naturally gravitated toward the town. A town of its character is unable to house new influx of population. Consequently there sprang up around it an extensive Hooverville." 35mm nitrate negative by Ben Shahn. View full size.
