Caption: Sharecroppers who had been evicted from farms in southeast Missouri beginning New Year's Day 1939 gather along U.S. Highway 61 near Hayti, Mo., on Jan. 11, 1939. About 1,500 banished sharecroppers and their families built makeshift living quarters along U.S. highways 60 and 61, the major U.S. routes through southeast Missouri. Passing motorists soon spread the word, and St. Louis newspapers began running regular stories and photographs. (Post-Dispatch)
