Sleeping on the streets in suits, long lines of men hunting for work and families relying on handouts to stay alive: Haunting images of The Great Depression in San Francisco

  • Between 1935 and 1944, the federal government sent photographers across the country to document the nation during The Great Depression and to show the success of their programs
  • Lange and John Collier captured dozens of haunting images showing the effects of The Great Depression in San Francisco, California during that time period
  • A Yale University project called Photogrammar has organized the collection of more than 170K photos
