America’s Original FaceBook Site

Here’s a family photo from America’s original FaceBook site, the US Library of Congress. The photo of two young American girls of Mexican heritage was taken in April 1934 in San Antonio, Texas, and is part of the Lomax Collection of the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.  The Lomax Collection of photographs depicts folk musicians, primarily in the southern US and the Bahamas during the Great Depression.  The collection, along with many other wonderful images, is available online at www.LOC.gov.
