Poverty, West Virginia

Count our blessings.

West Virginia, Coal Miner’s home, kitchen, 1937, still the Depression. Notice the walls have been patched with newspaper to keep out drafts. The children appear all barefoot.  Today people know “miners” through The Hunger Games only. This is a picture which still shows affection, perhaps closeness, and you wish you knew more about the people and what happened to them.800px-Scott's_Run,_West_Virginia._Employed_miner's_family_-_Sessa_Hill_-_This_picture_was_taken_at_the_natural_supper_hour...._-_NARA_-_518391.jpg
