I had no idea that I found such a famous photo. :)

Please, the recognition of this very picture goes way back 2008.

ignorant and arrogant. Among all your pics now this Ms. Lang photograph stands on the top. Get some culture lady.

The point here is that this is one of the most enigmatic photos ever taken. Moreover you could find it in any photo history book

Sorry,I didn't want to hurt anybody. If you saw my pics you should know that I'm not ignorant and my remark was NOT sarcastic. But I think in this case (the photo was taken in the 1930's), the name of the woman is absolutely not important. Moreover, I am sure that the photgrapher just wanted to show how some people lived and I can imagine that she didn't know the woman's name either. On the other hand, I am quite surprised, because there are hundreds of similar photos showing people's hard life here, and you never asked the people's name before.

Scomi, your ignorance is pathetic.

This was taken by Dorothea Lange when she worked for the Farm Sercurity Administration during the Great Depression of the 1930's.Photographers such as lange, Russell Lee, Ben Shahn and others documented the human tragedy the depression wrought, and helped stir the conscience of the nation. This photograph is one of several by Lange in "The Family of Man," perhaps the greatest American photographic exhibition ever, put together by Edward Steichen for the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in 1955.

Is it important?

Did anyone ever find out who she was?

Sorry for the mistake. Correctly: Destitute pea pickers in California, mother of seven children, age thirty-two, in the 1930s. This image was selected as a picture of the day for February 24, 2008.
