The power of the picture



“Between Dallas and Austin, ”  the title, is all I know about this photograph.  It is in the public domain.  It looks as if it were taken sometime in the 1930s.  The rest of what we can know of it must be supplied by one’s imagination, or lots of difficult research.  So let’s imagine.

Dad is the photographer on this trip, proud of all his girls.  Mom and the kids pose easily for this shot – on the way to or from.  They are neat and tidy folks of modest means, but we do not know just how modest.  Somehow, I do not think this is all they own.  I sense this is an early version of an RV.

What do you think?
