  • Read Caption: Family moving into trailer at the FSA (Farm Security Administration) camp for defense workers. This family is from Minnesota. The man came to San Diego ten months ago and enrolled in a vocational school. He started to work at Consolidated Aircrafts as a riveter and is now a clerk in the machine shop. Before his family came out three weeks ago he lived in a cabin for which he paid twelve dollars per month. He said it was alright for a man but that he wouldn't take his wife and children into such a place. He got a furnished apartment for his family--it was two rooms, rental eleven dollars per week. His wife soon discovered that there was inadequate hot water and was overrun with roaches and rats. What happens now – were you engaged – would you like to find out more?

Highsmith is photographing California during the next several months, in cities large and small, from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary celebration to El Centro’s vegetable fields and the world-famous Yosemite National Park. Highsmith’s California project is made possible by funding from the Capital Group Companies Charitable Foundation in memory of Jon B. Lovelace. The collection will provide a valuable visual portrait of California at the beginning of the 21st century and will be given to the Library copyright-free. The images will be housed in the Library’s Prints and Photographs Division. These photographs are part of Highsmith’s This Is America! project, which will document America state by state over the next 15 years.
