The photo I have attached is one that pertains to a viewers emotions. One of America's hardest times as a country was in the 1930's. It was a post-war time, the dust storms hit North America with a furry, and Americans became deeply impoverished. This photo that I found on the web shows the vast amounts of dust, and the amount of damage that came with it. This image is simple and direct, and speaks to all Americans because we struggled as a nation during this period. It's not just worth 1,000 words but this image jumps off of the page and touches people emotionally. Also, since it is in black and white, it speaks to the time period from which it came. It's simple, easy to remember, and is a lasting image in the minds of those who study it.
