SUMMARY
Portrait shows Florence Thompson with several of her children in a photograph known as "Migrant Mother."

NOTES
Title from caption card.

This is the original nitrate negative for "Migrant Mother" (LC-USF34-009058-C).
It was retouched in the 1930s to erase the thumb holding a tent pole in lower right hand corner.
The file print made before the thumb was retouched can be seen in copy negative LC-USZ62-95653.

Part of the "Migrant Mother" series.

A copy transparency (LC-USF346-009058-C) and a copy safety negative (LC-USF347-009058-C) are also in the collection.
