Florence Owens Thompson, born Florence Leona Christie, was the subject of Dorothea Lange's famous photo Migrant Mother, an iconic image of the Great Depression. The Library of Congress titled the image: "Destitute pea pickers in California. Mother of seven children. Age thirty-two. Nipomo, California." Though Thompson’s 10 children bought her a house in Modesto, California, in the 1970s, Thompson found she preferred living in a mobile home and moved back into one. This is where it was.
