Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?

June 1939. Migrant children heading west in the back seat of the family car somewhere east of Fort Gibson in Muskogee County, Oklahoma. View full size. 35mm nitrate negative by Russell Lee for the Farm Security Administration.

Back Seat?

Good. I'm an Oklahoman, presently residing near Muskogee. It's nothing like the hick song; Trust me.

The caption reads that the kids are in the back seat of the family car. Not so. See the sideboards the girl is resting her arm on? That's in the bed of a pickup or small truck.

Stereo Imagery

The side by side makes for a pretty good stereo image.

Cropped?

This photo and the one earlier seem to be from the same negative, as the towheaded lad in this one is identical to the other.

And yes, the girl is beautiful.

[Compare. Two different photographs. - Dave]

Okie

I won't make any comment about an Okie from Muskogee!

Shining Brightly

She's beautiful!
