      The description says the scan is from the original negative but it appears to be a scan of a print

      Always loved this one. It looks like poor 1930's farmers on another planet.

      johnny.jake: You’re right, the scan is from a print. Our descriptions reflect information from a card file for the original negatives in the FSA/OWI archive. Since this original negative is no longer available, we filled in with a print from the files created in the 1930s.
