Mexican Farm Workers on Bus 1943



Mexican workers recruited and brought to the Arkansas valley, Colorado, Nebraska and Minnesota by the FSA (Farm Security Administration), to harvest and process sugar beets under contract with the Inter-mountain Agricultural Improvement Association. May 1943. FSA - Library of Congress.

Every Thursday a carefully selected old agricultural photo is featured here on Big Picture Agriculture — lest we forget how things used to be.

    1. Ummm... I think you're right. I just used the caption that came with the photo rather mindlessly...
