The Dust Bowl combined with the Depression in the 1930s is a time that will forever be remembered for the harsh brutality that people faced. With thousands of Dust Bowl refugees pouring into California, photographer Dorothea Lange took it upon herself to capture the hardships that Americans faced in these times. Her photos capture scenes of poverty and despair, and still exist today as reminders of what older generations suffered and fought through to get to where they are now.
