Dorothea Lange Pix at State Library Feature Hops

At the State Library is a new show of Dorothea Lange's FSA photos taken here in Oregon.

Most of you will have encountered Lange's iconic "Migrant Mother" image taken in 1936.

Lange traveled the country from 1935 to 1939 taking photos of farms and farmers, especially migrants, as part of work for the Farm Security Administration.

Here are details from two images that feature hops.

We love the Hops Fiesta majorette! Who knew Independence could have so much fun?
