Depression-era photos by Dorothea Lange

Dorothea Lange (May 26, 1895 – October 11, 1965) was an influential American documentary photographer and photojournalist, best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Lange’s photographs humanized the consequences of the Great Depression and influenced the development of documentary photography.

John Denver was born Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. His mother was Irish Catholic, his father of German ancestry.

  1. Denver was flying an experimental type plane and was looking at prison time for his 4 or 5 DWI’s, since he had just got busted again for DWI.

    Someone who sang such cheerful songs must of had some demons baying at his soul.

    • Didn’t know about the DWI’s. Sounds like he did have a few demons. Maybe it was an FWI (flying while intoxicated) that got him killed.

    • Vampires??? Talk about blood libel! Gopstein’s wacko alright. I posted an article on him a while back.

      Merry Christmas to you too, Hevena!!! And best wishes in the coming year!!!

    • It seems to be characteristic behavior of these beasts that they do a lot of dancing, jumping-up-and-down, and waving of knives. I’ve seen videos like this before. It gives you the feeling that you’re watching some sort of ritualistic behavior such as might be observed in animals, though that’s probably giving animals a bad name.
