Feb 18th, 2020 : No Manís Land

Part of FDRís New Deal during the Great Depression was the Farm Security Administration helping rural Americans
struggling to keep their farms going.Included in the program was to photograph participants showing their plight
and progress. I suspect it was to hush critics wanting to know exactly where the money went too but it resulted
in a hoard of hundreds of thousands of photographs documenting the depression in America.

Shorpy brings us one of those photographs with the title, No Manís Land.



Quote:
May 1940. Grant County, Illinois. "FSA rehabilitation borrower operating tractor. She and her mother run the farm without the assistance of any men." Medium format acetate negative by John Vachon for the Farm Security Administration.

I don't know who shorpy is, but that sure looks like Sigourney Weaver driving that tractor.

Did you click the link, everyone should know Shorpy.

Maybe she's Ms Weaver's grandmother.

What, Shorpy is only 600 pages of expandable pictures with a short explanation of what, where, who, how, and sometimes why.
The name Shorpy comes from "Shorpy Higginbotham, a 'greaser' on the tipple at Bessie Mine, of the Sloss-Sheffield Steel & Iron Co.
in Alabama. Said he was 14 years old, but it is doubtful. Carries two heavy pails of grease, and is often in danger of being run
over by the coal cars."

By the way Grandma Weaver is driving a McCormick-Deering tractor.
