Are Times This Tough Yet?

This photograph came to embody the Great Depression, and the little girl nuzzled into her mother's shoulder is still alive. She talks about her life and the conditions of the time here.

McIntosh is the girl to the left of her mother when you look at the photograph. The picture is best known as "Migrant Mother," a black-and-white photo taken in February or March 1936 by Dorothea Lange of Florence Owens Thompson, then 32, and her children.
