Creepy!

That's a creepy photo.

Looks like a Soviet work camp on a good day. Can't be in the US.

[This is one of more than 50 photos taken by Dorothea Lange at the Farm Security Administration's migratory labor camp at Merrill, Oregon. Which is of course in the United States. A few more below. - Dave]
