  1. Awesome picture!! The good thing is that there are still juke joints that look just like this one. I went to one a few years ago and had the most fun. They were still open last year and didn’t look like they were going anywhere.

    What a pretty lady. I love her scarf and boots. And lovely photography.

  2. Hey, hey! I got a chance to watch this wonderful documentary. Thank you for that information!! So interesting! I have always been overwhelmed by the Dorothea Lange picture of the “Migrant Mother.” The story of how Lange left but felt compelled to come back to take more pictures is amazing. Do you know what happened to the Migrant Mother? I haven’t been able to find out anything on the internet, but maybe I’m just not looking in the right places. The documentary said she was gone before help arrived. I have always wondered how her story ended. Thank you!!!
