The Great Okie Migration by Elisa Nicolas and Nour Maestro
We present these eight pictures representing the Great depression, they show the different stages and moments of the process. The Great depression lasts from 1930 to 1939. It is the most important economic crisis of the twentieth century.
On these photos have seen the poverty of migrants. These migrants wanted to go to California to find a job, for this they had to pass by road 66 which is the longest road of California and sometimes they could have problems which their cars, some finished the road on foot because they even have to abandon their cars in case of big problems. Once they arrive in California all the jobs are taken and so they have to go to camps with lot of migrants is the same situations as they. In these camps they live in tents, they are king of slums, they are all on each other with their very close dwellings. The Migrants can easily get sick because of the dirt of these camps, we can even find landfills with garbage cans everywhere.
