Dorothea Lange/Library of Congress. (July 1937)

Lange noted that the father was a sewing machine, lawn mower and small engine repairman who had brought his family to Macon looking for work, but becuase the city of Macon required a $25 license for such work, he was forced to take his family back to Alabama.
