These first photos were taken in July 1940 at Shawboro, NC, for the Farm Security Administration by Jack Delano. They show a family on their way north for the summer picking season. The family started out at their home in Florida and were destined for the truck farms of New Jersey. The photos belong to the set of photos in the LC Prints and Photos Division from the Office of War Information.
This next group of photos was taken in New Jersey in June 1942 by John Collier, as part of FSA's Migratory Camp Program. Most come from the large Seabrook Farm in Bridgeton, NJ. I've a vague sort of connection with this farm in that I met a woman in college who turned out to be a member of the farm-owning Seabrook family.
