The Grapes of Wrath
14 April 2014 is the 75th anniversary of the publication of John Steinbeck's novel "The Grapes of Wrath" which follows a family of tenant farmers driven out of their home by drought and poverty. The real-life tragedy of people struggling to find work and feed their families in a time of economic crisis is captured in these photographs from the archive.
