Hooverville Children

Two small children during the Great Depression sit beside a donation jar labeled "Hoover's Poor Farm Tobacco Fund." They are part of a squatter community, of a kind known bitterly as "Hoovervilles" because of the President's inability to even admit to the existence of a national crisis. A sign in front reads, "Hard Times are still Hoovering over Us."
