A rare, iconic image from the Great Depression, “Unemployed Men“, never before published. We assess with a high degree of probability that this photo was taken in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania c.1937.

“Well we’re living here in Allentown

And they’re closing all the factories down

Out in Bethlehem they’re killing time

Filling out forms

Standing in line….”
