I'd be willing to bet that the theme behind this group of photos is lost on most. Rather profound, considering the times we presently are living in.

The 2nd pic is one of Dorothea Lange's pics.  She's one of the most famous of all depression era photographers.

Also - I bet most of those trucks were from Oklahoma (last pic) & Kansas.  The dust bowl hit that area hard and many moved to California.

Yes, FSA photos of okies migrating to California. The Grapes of Wrath wasn't just a tearjerker novel.

Both of my parents grew up in Oklahoma.  My Mom grew up on a ranch in southern Oklahoma; her family wasn't affected much by the depression as they raised all their food, and bartered for the rest.  Her Dad ran the  sand and brick plant so they had some money.  My Dad didn't have it as good, but not too terrible. They had a farm and raised their own food, plus my great uncle was a judge so they had a steady paycheck coming into the family.  But they did see a lot of families move to California.

Couple of work trucks, behind Howard Hughes in the ill fated XF11, circa 1946. This one, with the counter rotating props, is the one he crashed in Hollywood.
