Title

Farm Labor Information Van

Description

Black and white image of a woman holding up one end of a sign that has been tied to the sides of a van. She points to the sign, which bears a drawing of two men, each holding a basket on one shoulder, on either side of the legend 'Farm Labor Information.' The woman has short hair and wears Capri pants and a short top. The van is parked in a parking lot, with a number of cars and buildings visible beyond it. Migrant farm labor has been an important part of agriculture in the area since the early 1900s, though the cultural groups which provide the majority of the laborers have changed over time.
