https://www.loc.gov/rr/print/list/128_migm.html 

​The photograph that has become known as "Migrant Mother" is one of a series of photographs that Dorothea Lange made of Florence Owens Thompson and her children in February or March of 1936 in Nipomo, California. Lange was concluding a month's trip photographing migratory farm labor around the state for what was then the Resettlement Administration. The featured lesson incorporates a rich text set, including fiction and primary sources.
